    I’m currently listening to your podcast #126 (Penguicon Reprise) and I heard something distributing. You make this comment about “a guy” who uses Gentoo for their server distribution at work. Let me tell you … I do as well. Gentoo is by far the best distribution I’ve ever used for personal, corporate workstations and servers.

    I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and assume you haven’t used or reviewed Gentoo recently and your comments are based on ignorance. You really need to (re)review it, and maybe take a look at Slackware and Arch while you’re as well.

    I typically don’t post comments, but recently I have been hearing a lot of disparaging remarks (yours and other podcasts) about Gentoo, Slackware and Arch as “too hard”, “not user friendly”, “time consuming”, … which I find frustrating because it puts off others who may not try these distributions because of your “advice”.

    You have volunteered yourself to speak as voices of the Linux community and FOSS and you should take that responsibility seriously. Give honest well informed opinions about distributions and not unhelpful rhetoric.

    Thank you for listening.
