Since you seem to be the resident distro junkie :D Did you see this one pop up on distrowatch today?

http://bintoo.sourceforge.net/drpl/

It'd be interesting to see how it stacks up next to Sabayon.

you know you want to download it.

:razz:

It's prebuild binary and not source.

Thanks for the link.

(As I side note, I don't know why I'm such a screenshot junkie. It's not like the applications look any different; they're all the same. I guess I'm just wondering what color scheme they use as a default. :rolleyes: #-o )

:razz:I have not seen it...Thanks for the link...but I found it ironic that they choose a name similar to my concept here:

Ubentoo Box...A Ubuntu/Gentoo hybrid (http://www.ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=307086&highlight=ubentoo+box)

I honestly won't be trying it,....but it looks cool....my distro junkie days have become bland...

I will stick with the tried and true....dedicated to Ubuntu and Sabayon.....and I will save my blank CD's/DVD's.....for my favorites of the past.....IE: Dreamlinux, KNOPPIX, rPath, Wolvix, Zenwalk, Aquamorph, Puppy, Dyne:bolic, Musix, GoblinX......etc. etc.

but I encourage all to try it and have fun with it....

The distro is obviously doomed if Rav Tux isn't going to try it:)

In my opinion, that defeats most of the purpose of Gentoo. It's good if you don't have internet or a good connection and still want the advantages of Gentoo, but I would pick Debian for those purposes. I don't have anything against it, that is just why I like Gentoo.
