Gentoo on my new server
I settled on Gentoo after reading a couple of reviews. The power of Gentoo is the flexibility it offers the user to select and choose whatever the user wants to install, without forcing it down the users throat like some other friendlier distros. Aah, finally I can install some package with full control of what goes along with it. Ofcourse, this means that the installation goes a lot slower and is a much more conscious effort for the user. Gentoo forces the user to choose each option along the installation path. The documentation that came along, explains why we need to do what we need to do and gives some fundamental knowledge about the same.
I'll probably post a review once I am done installing it. So far so good.
