    Popular? You mean the distro that not even the Gentoo users had heard of when you posted those benchmarks?

    popular is a bit exaggerated. But IMHO it's a well known distro among most Linux distro hoppers.

    This distro has more in common with the original Gentoo than Sabayon and is also easy to install. A good distro for someone who want's to try a Gentoo system, which doesn't require much work at the installation.

    I tried this distro several month and I overall rather liked it, but I prefer easier distros like CentOS or Fedora now.

    Why is it that when Michael talks about Ubuntu Linux, he doesn't say "Ubuntu (Debian-Based) Linux"?

    He should be consistent.

    That is, because most Ubuntu users don't even know it uses the Linux kernel.
    How about [A-Z]buntu (Debian-Based) GNU/Linux?

    Because Calculate is Gentoo; and Ubuntu is not Debian.
