Now, the graphical installer of Gentoo works...
I'm a Sabayon and Gentoo user.
in my opinion, old gentoo, previous versions were not CUSTOMiZABLE IN THE INSTALLATION, but were VERY DIFFICULT TO INSTALL and initial WORKING... the user loose many time to put their Gentoo usable!
Modern Distros, should be CUSTOMIZABLE AFTER THE INSTALLATION and not during the installation...
Now.... new versions of Gentoo are much better than the antique, now is customizable and usable....
Antique Gentoos were only for experts, and only experts that are fans of Gentoo!
Common experts tried Slackware, not Gentoo!
Gentoo was very time consuming.....!
experts that in the past ,try to use less time consuming linuxes, migrates to debian anf slackware (also difficult, but not as Gentoo).
Now, no more difficult to install linuxes exists, neither Gentoo, Slackware, Arch ou Debian.
I'm a Chemistry Scientist. Science, as Technology is even up to date...
The times of the black screen terminal are the past..
In my oppinion, New Gentoo is much better than the antique Gentoos!!!
In Brazil, Gentoo has more users compared with in the past, debian and slackware also!
freeBSD is not a Linux. Is Unix based system, is similar to Linux, but is a not a Linux system
