Bye Gentoo... Welcome Ubuntu

Hi all!

After long time using Gentoo distribution (since June 2004) , I decided to try another distribution. I think one of the reasons I'm leaving Gentoo may be because I'm getting older and I'm not getting fun anymore of tweaking it. ;) Just kidding. Gentoo was and still is my best Gnu/Linux experience I had until now. I love the freedom you have to choose what you want and not want compiled and all the tweaks you can do. I learned very much about Gnu/Linux with it. Because of my aging, I think I'm getting lazier too :) Now I want my system to have everything automagically configured to me. I want to concentrate on other things besides the OS and desktop itself.

So, after some time trying to find another distribution, I decided to try Ubuntu Gutsy (7.10) Wow!! It is working perfectly! Just the way I wanted and it is super fast! Awesome! I have to admit I was a little skeptical about overall performance ( I think this is normal as I was coming from Gentoo) and also because my experience with Ubuntu 6.10 and 7.04 were horrible ( the whole thing was very very slow! ) Now the history seems to be different, way different. Ubuntu Gutsy is very fast and I liked it.

Just to note, I also installed OpenSuse some time ago, which seems to be a very nice distribution too. I like the 1-click install idea. But I had a bad experience with it when trying to mount my external hd's. Some time later, after I had removed it from my laptop I found out the problem wasn't with OpenSuse, but a kernel bug. When OpenSuse 11 comes out I shall try it again.


Last week I updated to Ubuntu Hardy (8.04) Alpha from update-manager -d command line. Upgrade was smooth and the system was very nice, until I find some problems which luckly I could find some easy solutions which are bookmarked on my del.ici.us.

The main problem was with old intel 855GM video card. Thanks forums and bug report I could find a tweak (hmmm, I didn't want that, but I had no choice) on xorg.conf which made the trick. Ubuntu developers say that this tweak comes default in new alphas of Hardy.

That's it! As soon as I get more information about how is going my experience with Ubuntu I will let you know.

I left Gentoo because important packages were left behind. Like postgresql!
Latest stable is 8.0.15 and 8.3 is not even ranked into unstable packages.
No, I won't say Gentoo has been a nice experience (since 2002!).

Exactly the same thing happened to me. I a happy Gentoo user until the day I got old and lazy, and switched to Ubuntu. Good thing I can still break stuff in Ubuntu!:)
Good Luck!
