Is Gentoo just an elaborate prank?

      He was using a thread ripper last I heard. In both cases it was a machine given to him.

      Fedora isn't his fav, it's the one that gives him money so it get priority

    i was interested in Gentoo and took my research on it seriously. I wanted to like it. The more I researched the more I asked myself "why would anyone use this as a daily driver?"

      Gentoo would probably be a distro I'll install just so I can say I installed it and never seriously use just like I've done with arch.

      I hope the example is not Poly-C because that's far from competent.

          For some reason he threw a hissy fit when Gentoo started dropping USE=ipv6 and enabling it unconditionally on various packages (when no extra dependencies or anything special, often it hardly changed anythig to the code making it kind of pointless to be optional), and then went on a crusade against Sam James (aka the currently biggest developer doing most of the actual work in Gentoo). First by ignoring everything he said/did (even ignoring reported real bugs), and by undoing his changes in his overlay. Later he started to see bad in everything mgorny did too (who has a tendency to not take shit from other devs and get abrasive if they're being moronic)

          He also started seeing conspiracies against him (spoiler: there was nothing, Sam had always been trying to just restore things with him too) and tried to make gentoo look bad in his blog: https://blog.gentoofan.org/

            cringe. seems he was right all along and gentoo goofed, then

    >you need to keep bdeps!
    You need them as well if you use the AUR or xbps-src, or, you know, compile things in general.

    This is hardly anything even remotely noteworthy.

    Compilation is one upfront hurdle and then it's a non issue as long as you update regularly and even still you can just set a cron to do it overnight

    you can't have that if you allow users to customze CFLAGS
    this thread is already moronic. if you want a baby b***h distro, use something else.

        well nothing's perfect, we have drama with BDFL too - like Linus loosing his edge and cucking out into CoC and Rust, and all other bullshit.

    Has using Gentoo increased your chances of becoming socially competent?
    Has using Gentoo made you a happier person?
    Has using Gentoo made you more efficient at making money?
    If you have a hard time answering these questions you probably shouldnt force your beliefs onto others because these are pretty fundamental questions. Nothing wrong with learning a new distro but Gentoo is really not the kind of distro that makes you stand out lol
