Gentoo Linux BoFSPatrick McLean (firstname.lastname@example.org)
Gentoo Linux has been one of the fastest growing distributions, and still is a very fast growing distribution. Being a "meta-distribution" we do not have distribution releases, simply installation media/livecd releases. As such we do not have the 6 month cycle that other distributions have, but instead we are always a moving target. This fact allows to be somewhat more nimble than other distributions, but at the same time can make it somewhat more work to keep up to date than a "normal" distribution.
