Re: [PhillyOnRails] Which Linux distro?

I thought the whole point of Gentoo was just a glorified LFS with a rip of the FreeBSD ports system? So if ls didn't have color set by default it was the builders fault. The thing that used to piss me off about Gentoo was I'd be 12hours deep into a install and forgot why I was building it in the first place.

Yeah, you're probably right about the gentoo on production machines thing.  I tend to go CentOS when building something for large scale work.  But anymore it disappoints me to use a distro that doesn't have ls color turned on by default.  Like debian last time I used it.

Simiarly, Solaris 10 bugs me cause doesn't even include a terminal definition for xterm-color.
