gentoo.org: We are pleased to announce the birth of the Canterbury distribution. Canterbury is a merge of the efforts of the community distributions formerly known as Debian, Gentoo, Grml, openSUSE and Arch Linux to produce a really unified effort and be able to stand up in a combined effort against proprietary operating systems.

SUSE

linuxaria.com: What these two distributions have in common? Very little in my opinion, except that the latest release of both came out last week, we got to version 11 of Gentoo live dvd and this last release stands at version openSUSE 11.4. Let’s see what these 2 distributions can offer to Linux users.

soosck.wordpress.com: I recently made a big jump from Debian to Gentoo on my EeePC netbook. Don’t get me wrong, I’m still a Debian fan; I just feel like that I need to try new things.

Why I Use Gentoo Linux

Gentoo

blog.calindora.com: I’ll admit it right here: Gentoo is my primary operating system and remains my favorite distribution of Linux. That’s not to say I haven’t experimented with others. Arch, Debian, Fedora and Ubuntu have all been installed on my machines at one point or another. I’ve used Exherbo, and I think it has a lot of promise. Even so, I’ve always ended up back using Gentoo. What keeps drawing me back?

Gentoo Linux sucks

jedihawk.com: When I first installed Gentoo, I thought it was pretty good. It was not as easy as other distros (such as Ubuntu), but it gave me lots of control.

Filed under
Gentoo

blog.jolexa.net: The QA team has said that there is some sort of “policy” on masking packages that break reverse dependencies. I’ll subscribe that that policy for the sake of not breaking users machines on purpose, however, let’s take a look at the current case study:

Let's Pay for Open Source with a Closed-Source Software Levy

This column has often explored ways in which some of the key ideas underlying free software and open source are being applied in other fields. But that equivalence can flow in both directions: developments in fields outside the digital world may well have useful lessons for computing. A case in point is a fascinating post by James Love, Director of Knowledge Ecology International (KEI), a non-governmental organisation concerned with public health and other important issues. It is called "The value of an open source dividend", and is a discussion of the problems the world of pharma faces because of the distorting effect of patents - problems it shares with the world of computing...

With Linux 3.18-rc1 arriving one week early I didn't have a chance to write a feature overview of Linux 3.18 prior to this first development release that marked the close of the merge window.
