Any of you try VLOS Linux, Kororaa or any other Gentoo based

Just curious. I assume that many if not all of you are handier with Gentoo based distros than I am. I was wondering what your experiences with the other Gentoo based distros have been like.

Thanks,

B.

Thread looked a bit lonely so i'll post my useless thoughts on kororaa. I dl'ed it a while ago to try out teh cube, but it was nowhere as polished as sabayon back then. Mid last year, i think. Maybe it has changed - no idea.

I briefly tried the Kororaa AIGLXgl 0.3 LiveCD -- last October I think it was -- as a result of reading about it on Chris Pirillo's blog:

http://chris.pirillo.com/2006/09/06/vis ... than-this/

and the 'sexy' GUI impressed me greatly, especially the rotating cube desktop, which was news to me then. I know it's eye candy, but it never fails to impress, does it? I never did install Kororaa to the HDD, though, as not all the hardware on my previous laptop was recognised. However, I've not tried the more-recent releases. Anyway, when I discovered SL this year it looked nicer in the screenshots and, more importantly, recognised all the hardware on my new laptop, so I ended up plucking up the courage to install SL. I'm hoping the developers can get XGL and DRI working for the ATI Mobility Readeon X1600 and then my contentment will be total. :wink:

I used vlos a long time ago when i got fed up with the gentoo install. But then due to harddrive failure, I just went back to windows.

When i got linux itch again, I was looking for other gentoo based distros and am probably going to stick with sabayon because of entropy.
