Gentoo Linux, or Why in the World You Should Compile Everything
Gentoo Linux is a special flavor of Linux that can be automatically optimized and customized for just about any application or need. Extreme performance, configurability and a top-notch user and developer community are all hallmarks of the Gentoo experience.
As a leader of Gentoo, I will provide an overview of how it works from a developer's and a user's point of view, and why you should be running it especially if you're:
- In need of an awesome development environment;
- Interested in learning what's inside the black box of Linux;
- OCD about having a perfectly configured setup; or
- Building an embedded, minimal system or a high-performance cluster.
If there's interest, I can also talk about future developments on the horizon for Gentoo, package management in general, etc.
