    Default Gentoo Will Celebrate 10th Birthday With LiveDVD

    Phoronix: Gentoo Will Celebrate 10th Birthday With LiveDVD

    Last year Gentoo canceled their 2008 release plans to focus on putting out just one release per year, while in years past they had put out as many as four releases per calendar year. There has not been a new official release of Gentoo since July of 2008, albeit they are one of the distributions to use a rolling release approach, but in honor of their tenth birthday they have begun work on a new LiveDVD. Gentoo has been producing timed snapshots of their installation media, but this will be the first Gentoo release in 2009.

    in fact, the first version of enoch was released in MAY 1999, but it is the renaming to gentoo and the creation of portage that is now going to be celebrated.

    there was alot of debate abt when the anniversary would occur and the date the settled on was downto other factors

    http://gentoo-pr.org/2009-Screenshot...ery/index.html
    These are the screenshots that have been submitted for the Gentoo10 screenshot contest. Some really good customisation of the desktop

    Whatever anyone says abt gentoo it still is cutting edge (bash4 stable, python3 stuff starting to creep in...) and silly flexable.
    You either love or hate gentoo.

    I for one <3 it and look forward to my 10th anniversary of using gentoo in 2013

    They really need that qtgtk translation program because those GTK apps on KDE look really shite.

    Uhm, Michael, what is "Gentoo Ten" actually? AFAIK, there's no such thing. Gentoo is always "Gentoo Now". There's no "ten" or "eleven" or whatever. Same as Arch Linux.

    Then you'd better go tell Gentoo to fix the page on their site Michael linked to in the article...

    "Gentoo 10" is explained in the (phoronix) article too.
