Re: [PLUG] Slides from my Gentoo Talk


I think you're overthinking this, which is ok. The heckling we are doing is more like trying to make the presenter feel a little more comfortable, not to suggest that a gentoo talk should be about Arch, or a fedora talk should be about ubuntu. Also, I think Rich was being sarcastic.

Fascinating. From where I stand, Gentoo and Arch are similar. Both have
chroot installs. Both require some Linux literacy from their users.
Both are simple and stable. The only hecklepoints I can imagine is that
one does live compile software installation and one doesn't, and one
requires systemd and one doesn't (yet).

Now if you'd said "Ubuntu", the heckleroom would be obvious.
