      That's my biggest problem with all of Linux. There isn't a single distro I have come across that comes close to Windows or Mac when you need to get shit done. You are either using insanely out of date software even for foss apps, or the ones you want simply don't exist. Linux is nothing but a giant pain in the ass.

        Also don't forget that you are more likely to install a virus when installing apps in Linux and that there is no games in Linux

        What exactly are you trying to do that isn't working on Linux? I'm assuming it isn't video gaymes, because it sounds like you're doing something productive.

    What makes it cool? What can you do with Gentoo that you can't with some other distro?

      Really good build system. If you don't know what that is, you don't need to use Gentoo.

        i dont think you know what a build system is because emerge/portage are not build systems

          >The Open Build Service (OBS) is a generic system to build and distribute binary packages from sources in an automatic, consistent and reproducible way. You can release packages as well as updates, add-ons, appliances and entire distributions for a wide range of operating systems and hardware architectures.

          >The Arch build system can be compared to ports for *BSD, which automates the process of building software from source code. The system uses a port to download, unpack, patch, compile, and install the given software. A port is merely a small directory on the user's computer, named after the corresponding software to be installed, that contains a few files with the instructions for building and installing the software from source. This makes installing software as simple as typing make or make install clean within the port's directory.

          Next time, don't talk out of scope. Before you say something stupid: make, cmake, gradle, ninja and other systems are _also_ considered build systems.

        Being able to run an all stable or all testing except for X number of packages is nice, but tbh most people only do it to minimize rebuild time on certain packages.

      People who participate in inane discussions like distro wars only do so because they lack the fundamental technical expertise to discuss anything more important. You can be assured that anyone who does this is undoubtedly some virgin loser who doesn't use Linux in any professional capacity.
