Testing Gentoo

Today, i just tested Gentoo LiveCD on VMWare and wow, it's so fast even though it's running on virtual machine, not a native machine. I have heard that Gentoo is very optimized because most of the system are compiled according to user's preferences, but i never thought that a LiveCD version will be able to do perform under the same condition as it's in native.

Judging from the performance, i'm interested to try installing a real Gentoo Linux on my VMWare machine at weekend. Since Gentoo requires Internet connection to download most (or should i say all) of the packages, it usually takes few days (in Indonesian typical Internet connection) to get a fully running, usable system.

Let's see what happened in the next few days...
