I just noticed that they (finally) added gentoo to the list of distro's in the desktoplinux.com poll. But we are getting our butts whooped on pretty well.

I know there are more of us out there, so go vote already!

here is the link to the polls section...

OK, folks -- it's fine to go register your support for Gentoo, but we don't need a bunch of "me too" replies in this thread. :)

If you have somtething substantive to add to the thread, please do. Otherwise, let's focus on other posts, shall we?

Acutally, I don't know...

Slack really used to have a large following (I know because I came from there). But I do agree that some are blown out of proportion... like Lindows. Are there really that many people using it???

I just had to do something about our numbers... WE WERE LOSING TO LINDOWS!!!

Thanks to everyone that voted - keep em coming, lets show those drakers out there that there is another desktop alternative in town.

Maybe that lends itself to demonstrate the majority of the type people frequenting such polls. 8O ;)

As klieber mentioned, no more "me too" posts. Next one locks the thread.
