these distributions “for advanced users” just celebrated its tenth anniversary : Gentoo 1.0 was launched on March 31, 2002, and since that first time became a reference distribution for the “hardcore users”.
celebrate Gentoo developers have released 12.1 of Gentoo LiveDVD package that comes with renewed in all areas: from kernel 3.3.0 to KDE 4.8.1 and GNOME 3.2.1 SC (sorry, no GNOME 3.4 for now).
you have more information on the origin of Gentoo, a distribution that was born through the work of Daniel Robbins, who tired of distros with precompiled binaries (with source code apart, of course) set out to create a distribution where everything is compiled from the beginning to optimize the maximum for each computer that was installed.
Actually Gentoo Gentoo was not called at the beginning: it was called Enoch, and his only public version, we know, was Enoch 0.75, which was launched in December 1999 . That project had some problems that were resolved to finish renaming the distribution with the current name.
The rest, as they say, is history. Our congratulations team Gentoo and all its users. If a user has to take from the beginning, ole!
