I know it is impossible to stop but all these easy install methods keep popping up and i was wondering if it is to the detriment to gentoo and linux in general?

The way i see it is that if a new user installs gentoo (via another method) without understanding how administration is handled etc then i see alot of disappointed people and alot of them saying bad things about it.

I'm certainly not saying that easier install methods are a bad thing, if a gentoo used has to install Gentoo on a wide variety of machines then it is very useful to have a binary/semi-binary version just for ease and quickness.

Anyway, what do you think?

Did we really close all of the three trillion existing threads about this?

I dont think you read it properly. I was asking whether easier install methods would lead to Gentoo getting a bad reputation
