Most people goto thier official site for help.

The gentoo forums are possible one of the best distro based forums going. Actually it just won a Linux Format Award (for those that read the mag). Mmmmhh I think I'll stick them a e-mail .. try to bump up more support?

I know windows, programming and databases well, but next to nothing about linux.

I tried debian, slackware, suse and redhat before I tried gentoo.

 

The gentoo install was alot more involved than the others, but at the end of it I felt like I knew what the hell was going on, and there are lots of great how-to's for gentoo.

 

So yeah, I love it.

I use gentoo pretty much exclusively on all of my machines. I just know it better, and feel that it is the best distro (if you don't mind compiling).

 

Distcc and ccache takes a lot of the time off of compiles, and it just works most of the time.

 

And yeah, the support forums, wiki, and documentation for gentoo are among the best anywhere.

I've got a gentoo server running for years now. It's my distro of choice tho i run Fedora as a desktop. :) As far as i see it, most of the distro's out there are just linux and well... linux = linux :) The main diffirence is mostly the packetmanager tho gentoo is diffirent sinds it needs to get compiled all the way :)

I had a friend who was new to Linux but found gentoo easy to get on with - "emerge" took care of everything for him, was just a matter of finding out what he needed *to* emerge.
