Gentoo is Rice compares users of Gentoo Linux users to ricers (those kids who bolt all kinds of weird aftermarket mods and bogus stickers onto their Toyota Tercels). My own history of statements regarding Gentoo Linux can be found via this search. As I’ve said before, I use Gentoo because it’s the only Linux distro that I’ve managed to keep up and running for an extended period of time without blowing up. I fear though that my server at home is on the precipice of a major collapse due to some problems with KDE and Gnome.
