Some of you might think this is fan talk,well,it is! Gentoo and its community should be proud of this OS.Before Linux all I knew was how to screw up
Windows royally, and spend countless hours searching for hacks and hacked programs that I didn`t understand.Before Gentoo, Distrowatch was my
favorite bookmark, I can`t count how many ISO`s I`ve burned.I am not guru by any means.I never became a member because I have nothing to
contribute but my gratitude..so here goes.

Thanks to all the devs for you`re hard work keeping this unique distro going. (I cant imagine switching to another)
Thanks to the community and this forum.(Even the whiny ones! they keep the devs on there toes) I would be lost with out it.lol


I recently posted this in the Why I don`t care if you drop recommendation of Gentoo thread.I have realized it is probably better here.
I apologize to those that might of thought it was out of place.I really just wanted to express my gratitude.

Yea, it is apparent that the community gets pretty heated up about that topic. I have never really seen so much dedication and passion for distro as this.

A little message to thanks all the people who are involved into Gentoo !

I just finished with installing Gentoo 2007.0 and everything works like a charm. I follow the handbook, find all documentation on the howto or gentoo wikipedia and it works. I am very happy of having a linux tailored to my needs (nothing in excess and nothing missing).

My configuration is a ASUS P5LD2-SE,, LVM2, KDE, sound card Edirol UA25, video card Nvidia 8800 GTS and Brother HL5150D.

The only thing with which i had to struggle was the fonts in KDE : by default they look ugly on my computer, so i use the fonts i have on a windows system and i had to modifiy /etc/fonts/local.conf to tell it what kind of font using for serif, sans-serif and mono.

A happy gentoo user

I just wanted to take a minute to thank all of the gentoo developers, admins, and others that make gentoo "happen". I have been using Linux for many years now since Linux 2.2 and have been through many Linux distros through the years as well as open/freebsd and I now exclusively use Gentoo for my servers and workstations (ok, I run xubuntu on the wifes computer).
ALSO, a big thanks to the folks that answer the posts in the forums. I tried many forums over the years and I can honestly say that the gentoo forums rock. The folks are very helpful here. One complaint I have is that the "quick search" sucks (it removes terms i search for sometimes and doesnt allow me to quote certain things I want to search for), but I can live with that. :)

Heres to many more years of Gentoo!

hi,

I've been a gentoo user for about a year and today I realized why I really like gentoo.

It's not the ability to compile everything from source, it's not portage in general, it's not the tight control gentoo gives you over your system (although I can appreciate all of these points from a technical perspective).

It's the documentation and the community around it: the official handbook, the mailing lists, these forums, gentoo-wiki.com, etc.
I am constantly amazed how easy it is to find the solutions to my problems.
So easy in fact, that I never had the need to register to these forums to ask any question (this is my first post). All information I ever needed was already out there.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this condition. Please keep up the good work!

Arne

Gentoo has turned me into an admin (from a scientific personnel maybe, and I've still not forgotten physics... maybe).

All thanks a Gentoo. Something which admins can use as a stable and productive desktop with the fun of leaning the internals too.

All,
I just wanted to take a moment to thank you all for all the hard work.
I am having alot of fun with Gentoo thus far.
Many times in these forums people simply come with problems and don't take a moment to simply appreciate everything that has been done.

So...on that note, i just wanted to say thanks, and if anyone out there shares this opinion and has enjoyed the community and its support, please drop a note of appreciation to everyone behind it.

Thanks again,
Yosef Sheva Porat

We enjoy it too which is why we put the effort in.

Moved from Gentoo Forums Feedback to Gentoo Chat as it fits better here.

Yeah although I think I have shared my praise before it has probably been too long. Thanks to everyone who makes gentoo the greatest, imho, distro available for linux. I have come a long way utilizing the great support and documentation and power of gentoo from a simple laptop with gnome five years ago to a powerful desktop with a fileserver, printrserver, webserver, and of course basically everything else you could want out of a desktop (video editing, music play and edit, graphics editing, super fast internet prowler, etc...)

Thanks :D
