Technically i dont know much, but this seems just an "easy" copy of Debian, if im not mistaken.
never tried it, but it seems to have an easy installer and lots of goodies. But i dont really get whats special of it....
Gentoo is special for lots of things (one is portage), but i would like to know whats special abt UBUNTU.

Theoryically i dont know... the all "group" kinda thing... everybody being so close, sharing... that seems nice.
but really dont know..
maybe what makes this distro so popular is actually the TEAM.

i installed warty when it was first released and the first thing i noticed was how polished the distro was. Gnome looked great and was usable (and i don't even like Gnome). and all the packages were bleeding edge at the time (X.org, Gnome 2.8, Evolution 2 (i believe)), etc.

in the end though, it wasn't gentoo. it seemed great for someone who either a) wanted to run debian or b) had never used Linux before.

so basically it was debian, but with a recent package repository.


it would be really nice to see gentoo polish up some of the window managers like Ubuntu had. things looked fantastic.

This is a dupe:

And it's most definately not gentoo chat.
