If we allow ourselves to think out of the box, we will realize that the Microsoft NT kernel is an alternative to Linux, that is both proven and commercial-grade. It has support from nearly all hardware vendors in the world, and practically every PC comes with an license for the NT kernel. This means: the monetary cost of a copy of the NT kernel is close to non-existent for the average end-user.

Gentoo Linux 2005.0 for x86 is now complete, and we will begin fulfilling x86 pre-orders today! AMD64 and PowerPC should start shipping very shortly as well.

Please note that 2005.0 is not yet available for download on Gentoo mirrors -- the Store is getting 2005.0 a week in advance of it appearing on various Gentoo mirrors worldwide. This is a good thing, as it will give us several days to catch up on Store pre-orders.

eWeek has a write up gentoo linux this morning. They say some nice things, but then "hesitate to recommend Gentoo for broad production use" because it "is for the most part a 'from source' distribution" and "the amount of time compilation requires".

    This week we worked really hard on a lot of important backend stuff that’s not so user-visible but will pay dividends down the road, such as launching applications using cgroup slices. We also did a ton of work on the Breeze Evolution project, however most of it is still in heavy development and not ready to be announced. It should trickle in during subsequent weeks, but until then, have a look at what did get landed...
