I just finished emerging FireFox on my iMac, and I wanted to say Thank You to the install guide authors/maintainers. The guide is amazing and it gets better all the time.

It took me a summer to get Gentoo on my desktop/server to work, and at every point I was able to turn to first the guide and then the forums and one after another I worked out all the kinks. It took me a day restore my desktop after a hard disk crash, all thanks to what I learnt from the manual and the forums. Last night it took me only a few hours to get a Gentoo installation on the iMac. Again, all thanks to what I have learnt on the forum and elsewhere.

Gentoo developers and forum-goers, a big thank you! :D
