Wait, doesn't Gentoo have all that? And didn't Gentoo have all that like a few weeks ago?
And isn't Gentoo much faster than some binary based distro?

Oh ok, I was just checking cause I thought that maybe this "Red Hat" companie may have been like some big power in linux or something. Have you ever heard of this Red Hat that I hear so much about?

hehe, jk

Someone did say atleast Mozilla's version was a type-o and that they actually have 0.9.9 in there. Much better than 0.9.2 :wink:

I happen to think the creamy Gentoo logo and that awesome cow graphic is pretty cool. ;)

I hate to say this but the cow has to go man. Reminds me to much of when I was working tech support for gateway computers. The nightmares continued for weeks after moving on.

Larry the Cow is ok, but a gentoo penguin is where it's at. The name is so cute and so is the creature. Ask anyone what they would rather hug a gentoo penguin or Larry the Cow. See what response you get. I spent about four days evangelizing the gentoo species over all other species of penguin when I first got into gentoo. It's small, fast, cute, and has a funny name. What more would you want?

I'd probably skoosh the penguin, so if I had to choose, it'd be the cow. :neutral:
