Gentoo is turning 10. For the last ten years, Gentoo has been committed to bringing the cutting edge source based distro to users that need more flexibility than binary packages can give them. With a vibrant community and over 300 developers, much has been accomplished since the beginning, Gentoo remains true to its origin.
Join us in the 2009 Screenshot contest open to both Gentoo Developers and Users.
For more information and to enter your screenshots, visit 2009 Gentoo Screenshot Contest.
We are looking for screenshots from Gentoo's beginning, if you have any or know the links please send them to David Abbott. They will not be part of the contest.
The anniversary date of 1999-10-04 was decided on by a couple of key dates in Gentoo's history. The name Enoch was changed to Gentoo and the domain name gentoo.org was registered. The founder of Gentoo Daniel Robbins, gives us this chronology.
