I have the Gentoo 2005.0 installed on my computer and I regularly update it. Should I install 2005.1 or should I keep the old installation on my computer?

If you are syncing and updating your system regularly, you already essentially have what's in 2005.1.

You should also change the link to current profile

Code:
/etc/make.profile -> ../usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2005.1


Be sure to emerge --sync before. Anyway it's not so much different, at least for x86

Code:
diff -r /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2005.0 /usr/portage/profiles/default-linux/x86/2005.1
...
diff -r default-linux/x86/2005.0/2.4/virtuals default-linux/x86/2005.1/2.4/virtuals

< # These will be removed once the headers and sources are merged
< virtual/os-headers            sys-kernel/linux-headers
< virtual/linux-sources sys-kernel/gentoo-sources
diff -r default-linux/x86/2005.0/packages default-linux/x86/2005.1/packages

Moved from Installing Gentoo to Duplicate Threads in favour of the thread ph03n1x mentioned.
