riconthego.blogspot: With much teasing or coaxing from Ax, I've installed Ubuntu Linux on my Toshiba P20, replacing the installation of Gentoo Linux on it.

Should we be lesser GNUs?

Filed under
Gentoo

flameeyes.eu: I have sincere doubts when people insist on calling Gentoo a GNU/Linux distribution, mostly because we’re well versed in supporting non-GNU Free Software alternatives, even if sometimes it’s quite difficult to do so.

Architectures and Gentoo

Filed under
Gentoo

armin762.wordpress: In gentoo we support 13 different architectures. Although amd64 and x86 are the most common and popular, they are only 2 architectures of the total 13 we support, so i thought i could write about the rest of the architectures and their status on Gentoo.

Gentoo

gentoo.org: Larry the cow is our prized mascot and he is not getting the respect he deserves. Just about every other Linux distribution, their mascot is adorned on t-shirts and other types of schwag, but not our Larry, he cannot even decide his gender. Please help up fix this.

Gentoo
SUSE

linuxtweaking.blogspot: I have been using Gentoo for a few months and it has been a good experience but generally I can't see myself continuing to use it. Funnily enough, OpenSUSE 11.3 has changed some of my thoughts about Gentoo.

Would Mark Shuttleworth use Gentoo had he not founded Ubuntu?

rrr.thetruth.de: Fortunately, sping said almost everything there is to say about LinuxTag. But there’s one important part missing: We finally made a peace treaty with what many call Gentoo’s arch nemesis (no pun intended?): Ubuntu.

Manufacturing is moving towards closer monitoring of production lines to spot inefficiencies. Cities are starting to deploy systems that allow for better integration of public services. UX is being optimized through extensive automation.
