linux

I've finally installed Linux on my notebook. Which distribution? touch choice…
Eventually it came down to the difference in package management systems
and the two systems I liked most are 'apt' which is found in debian
based distributions and 'emerge' from the gentoo distribution. I went
for gentoo mostly because I feel that it gives me more controll over
what I want to install. I had my thumbs crossed because I really wanted
to use the packages cd (you really don't want to wait untill KDE is
compiled before you can use your system). I must have f*cked up
somewhere in the process, because I only managed to install KDE from
the packages disc (maybe I should have disconnected the ethernet
cable?).
However overall I'm satisfied with the time the installation took, and
it may be worth mentioning that the gentoo manual is very detailled and
complete. I hope that I can take a peek at Sun's project Looking Glass once I figured out which ATI drivers I should use.
