@Dmitry Malikov thats true ;D, didn't think about it
 
This release includes great ZFSOnLinux support and a touch of the cinnamon desktop environment for your viewing pleasure. Don't forget we still included two easter eggs. +François Lalumière I included an awesome 'Gentoo Install Wizard' but it only works on April 1th for some weird reason :D. +Jason Huebel ahem :D
 
Articles in Linux magazines are saying it's the best Linux LiveDVD/USB release ever ... And colleagues ask me why I use Gentoo?
 
I think its time to come back to Gentoo after few years!
 
Hehe. Gentoo "Live DVD", which usually dies at boot in some 90% of cases on my machines...

Live in the sense of "Not really living but not really dead either" - "undead" rather.

And that's indeed how it should be labeled - "Gentoo Undead DVD"
;o)))

EDIT: To be fair, I am a regular Gentoo user and it is my only choice. I checked out other distros but stayed with Gentoo for quite some years ( I think it was then labeled as version 1.4 ;o)

But their boot and live medias sure tend to suck...
 
With my 115kg I am hardly little and really have never considered myself as good. I am more in the asshole part of the spectrum... ;o)

WRT to filing reports- nah. I file bugs ( with solution/patch when I have it) where there is a chance forthem to be fixed. "Live"DVD is so dead for me that this would make no sense.

And from what I hear, I'm far from being alone. People report using other distros Live DVD ( like Ubuntu) for installing Gentoo...
 
I can't. I'm not a subscriber. Besides, it wouldn't be a first glowing review of a guy that did not take his job seriously,so I tend to ignore such reviews.

I'll believe it when i see it and I'll see it no sooner than when I need it ;o)
 
People use other distros Live DVDs because they can install Gentoo that way too. A Gentoo minimal does the same job just fine.
 
Yeah but why does the Live DVD implement the KDE DE (by default) and not GNOME. GNOME rocks!
