Forum OpenACS Development: Re: New linux distribution to replace defunct RedHat consumer?
However, I'd just like to point out that the proposed "advantage" of Gentoo in getting a "highly optimized system" is more an urban legend than anything. A product of the subconscious of those who wait dozens of hours for a system to _install_ and want to believe it was worth the wait.
So far I haven't seen a single independent test that shows any performance advantage to the source-compile-everything approach of Gentoo. To the contrary, independent tests have shown that it actually fares worse than Mandrake or Debian.
P.S.: I like Gentoo. Just trying to dispell a myth.
