Not that I know of. But every year we bring a variety of boxes, everything from laptops to desktops to weird embedded things. I posted a picture and writeup on our awesome toys from last year's show.

Oh, OK, so primarily personal stuff people have put Gentoo on and not commercial products sold with Gentoo or with the primary function provided by Gentoo?

Should show the Misa Guitar. That would have some draw.

We've got some of the Google Cr-48 laptops on display; ChromeOS is based on Gentoo. Everyone is pleasantly surprised to find out Google chose Gentoo for their stuff. There's also a Nail Kit (embedded ARM) and some kinda mini MIPS hardware firewall/VPN/crypto box. Also our own x64 laptops are displayed to show the neat things goin' on in the latest Fluxbox/KDE/Xfce environments.

I am more surprised that people are surprised that Google choosed Gentoo Linux for their ChromeOS when there couldn't be a better metadistro to create such a customized environment. Ignorance is a bliss. Gentoo is on the GO!

I was wondering about dual booting Android and Gentoo on mobile devices. That will be popular.

I heard people did this with Debian.
