No more Gentoo for me

Note: This is an old post in a blog with a lot of posts. The world has changed, technologies have changed, and I've changed. It's likely this is out of date and not representative. Let me know if you think this is something that needs updating.

I was running Gentoo on my Dell Inspiron 7000 laptop but today I've gone and slicked it. I'm going to switch my laptop over to use Debian. Gentoo is pretty neat, but it takes me days to compile GNOME and I'm hitting the point where the novelty is wearing off and I want to actually use my laptop.

Anyhow, I recommend it for folks with more powerful machines. I enjoyed running it and learned a lot in the process.
