Re: why gentoo

what do you guys think of open/free source. the concept of learning, sharing knowledge is what pulls me. the economics i am still not sure of. but i am sure some of the worlds best brains are involved in open source.

I feel that open source is about people who are extremely passionate about what they're doing. I really respect that. I feel with open source, by it's nature, forces you to learn a LOT. And I agree with you about the best brains working on it too.

Regarding gentoo... it was a nice article. Here's another one I came across on oreilly...

Also, there's a stream of the founders talk at Standford... I haven't seen it.
