Gentoo

1. Introduction

This month in the GMN

Welcome to the November issue of the Gentoo monthly newsletter!

This issue is bigger than usual, as there was no October issue. Your editors were out of the country, attending conferences, moving, and dealing with massive hardware failure. However, things are hopefully back to normal. Lots of stuff in this issue!

As usual, you can discuss any aspect of this issue of the GMN in the corresponding forum thread. We look forward to hearing from you!
