Slashdot Troll on the Gentoo Zeitgeist

Here's another good troll on Slashdot. Unlike my previous post about the Slashdot Macintosh zeitgeist, this one is too profane to post an excerpt here. But it's very funny IF you've ever installed a Gentoo Linux system. I have and I nearly spewed my morning coffee on my computer screeen when I first read it.

FYI, Gentoo Linux is known as a source-based distribution because it allows the user to download source code and compile it himself in order to wring out all of the performance there is in his computer hardware. It's a lot of fun but it isn't for newbies. People just starting out in Linux should use SuSE or Mandrake Linux.
