Well, at least you can say you've learned something today.


I'm more bugged by:

However, Gentoo's non-commercial status, as well as its reputation as a bleeding-edge distribution for Linux system tweakers, has so far dimmed its prospects for enterprise adoption.
I guess the part where it IS used in enterprises isn't relevant.

Also, his reference: "Administrators interested in learning more about Gentoo should check news.gmane.org/gmane.linux.gentoo.server." You'd think he'd mention official resources by this point too.

Overall, I'd say it was a weak review. Perhaps its a new writer.

I suppose he could have been a new writter, or more likley he was just reporting second hand knowledge (copying someone else's review) out of laziness, hence his link to a non official site!

Yes, it were rather weak and yes, it missed out on some technical stuff (all of it) and had some bad links (all of them again) but I still think that the article is worth noticing.
eWeek is rather large and this is the first in, what I hope, might be several closer-to-mainstream medias giving us attention.

Gentoo has grown exceptionally fast in quite a short time and now we're starting to be noticed.

Course, they have written an article on Gentoo once before but I'm trying to forget that. ;-)
