Wow...it was 3 years old when I started using it...and back then, I thought it was brand new. Oh, well, in commemoration, we should post that thread from several years back which explained that Gentoo's death was imminent...what a hoot.

Great artwork for the Gentoo Linux 10.0 Live DVD.

Happy birthday, beautiful artwork. @Ben: mind making a 1400x1050 version, or even better, releasing the source files?

I downloaded the combo, preview DVD about a week ago
(which worked flawlessly, thank you)
expecting it to have an installer. It didn't!

Does this live DVD include an installer?

Yeah, the source files would be nice to have. I would like to try my muscles at making a bootsplash from the wallpaper. :) I you can't release the source files, I would like to have 1280x1024 one.

Anyway, Happy anniversary for the best linux distro out there and me, I turned 25 the same day. :P

Huge thanks to all developers and maintainers past and present (and future!) for all the hard work that they've put into helping Gentoo evolve. Really, really appreciate it.

Added bonus is that I've just built myself a new PC (first time at having a go at building from scratch) and am going with a nice new 10.0 profile*

LiveDVD is great and I like the artwork, very funky :)



* Currently having issues compiling a working kernel config, but thats a separate thread!

Still great distro, great community and my system hasn't reached 1.0 yet :D

Is it possible to buy the livedvd 10.0 somewhere? I don't have fancy colorlaser and nice dvd cases :cry:

Way off-topic, and not very interesting either, but some discussion here
