I Just Can't Help Myself
They say that the third time is the charm, don’t they? Whoever “they” are, that is. As a dedicated Slacker, I have been using Slackware on my laptop for a couple of years now and have been extremely happy with it. But then I think, “I should try other distros out”. Debian and Debian based distros are out – not because there’s anything wrong with them, but because I have tried them and just don’t like them. It’s me, not Debian.
So I am going to retry Gentoo. Since I became comfortable with Slackware I have been considering switching, even just for a short while, to Gentoo. Just to see what I am missing out on. My installs have always failed in the past, but that was my fault – I never had the time or patience for it.
However, everything seems to be falling into place to make this work: I have faster broadband (thanks to my employer), the initial install is now quicker (thanks to Gentoo) and I have a little more time available to me (thanks to the ‘flu).
So I’m going to give it a go. I’ll let you know how I get on.
