Gentoo 2005.0

Gentoo Linux 2005.0 has been released. Of course, the beauty of Gentoo is that nearly everyone who’s already using it couldn’t care less — they’re kept current by the magic of Portage.

Still, the Gentoo install CD doubles as an amazingly versatile rescue disc, not to mention makes a dandy temporary-terminal boot disc, for those times when you don’t want the full glory (and overhead) of Knoppix.

If Gentoo and Knoppix don’t constitute Exhibits A and B as to why P2P applications like BitTorrent are not merely legitimate, but insanely useful, I don’t know what does.
