I have a laptop that I want to do a Gentoo install on. We could use that
for showing a stage3 "fast" install and switch to Mike's small form factor
for post-install. I also have a small form factor PC I could bring in
that has Gentoo on it if necessary.
I think discussing what makes Gentoo unique, its pros and cons, will be
great. If we're going to discuss why distro is better (or worse) than
other than I say Debian. I say this because the "pretty" distros (SuSe,
Mandrake, Fedora) are too different for a fair comparison. I also say
this because I switched to Gentoo after trying a little bit of Debian.
