gentoo update January 19, 2008

Hmm,

I am definitely “behind the technology curve” as a friend of mine calls it. My gentoo Linux system is of 2006.1 and i haven’t updated my portage tree, since April 2007! I wonder whether the gentoo guys still exist and are still top of the line. I noticed gentoo-based distributiions like Sabayon that look promising. And as shown in distrowatch.com, gentoo is still relative popular (about 17th, used to be < 10 most of the time), despite recent problems (no 2007.1 release, various other problems). I hope they keep the good work this year too …

LWN (http://lwn.net/Articles/262833/) has this nice yearly Linux review. KDE-4 is out,  this  is great, but  i am  thinking of  turning to xfce  for  this year (keep it simple dude!)
