There are articles all through 2008, up until December 20.

I’m sure Gentoo the distro will survive, even if the company doesn’t. I’m thinking that the company may very well get its act together and revive.

I’d certainly hate to lose Gentoo, though. Their distro, as you said, gave me plenty of headaches and long, sleepless nights – and lots of fun, too.

I’m sure that there will always be enough of a user/developer base to at least keep it intact until it starts coming back. There are plenty of smaller distros that are more than surviving.

Why thats all I see, bureaucrats. Where are the real brains? in the basement?
Gentoo Is Dead, not the concept, but the “name” and thus the distro. May we learn from this lesson and expire developers that do not contribute and be extremely wary of individuals that aspire for personal gratification via some superficial status such as a IRC operator or @leetdistro.org email – don’t be so desperate for such immature developers, it will come back to bite you (as it has gentoo).
Furthermore, always be on the look out for talentless individuals that only have “diplomas in psychology” or some warped “Public Relation” experience – that deviantly aspire to test “game theory” on a simple and innocent linux development community.

Thus destroying it.

Live and learn.

Time for new concept (WIP).

Gentoo will be superseded, by a far superior concept. Its just a matter of time.

The Gentoo Foundation is still the legal owner per their Bylaws.

I would like to see Daniel take the helm again so his supporters can return to Gentoo. If not, fork Gentoo, combine with Sabayon, or create a new distro, Funtoo, and watch his community grow.

yes but on the frontend, it’s really nice to see updates no matter how small, like a newsletter.

@x86xlat
Ah yes, it’s really rewarding once you’re able to build it from the ground up but it’s a darm long process that everyone should experience. Takes care of the noobs and it welcomes the willing. Definitely a win-win.
