Just had a discussion on irc were I was asked how old Gentoo actually is, so I started looking on wikipedia, the gentoo.org about page and more, but came out clean.
So, it should be around 1999, but when exactly? :)

It depends how you define the age of a distro. Gentoo.org was registered on 04-Oct-1999 16:08:45 UTC. Gentoo's first stable version was released on 2002/03/31. Daniel Robbins wrote about the "Birth of the Gentoo Linux distribution" on 01 Nov 2000 in a IBM developer article.
