Re: [vox-tech] debian and openoffice

How does Gentoo keep it's "stable" branch "up-to-date" without becoming unstable? Could Debian learn from this?

On the other hand, there are a lot of unofficial backport sites so you can run, say, the latest Mozilla on Debian Woody. But I have found that it would be nice to have something between stable and testing in Debianland.

What level of expertise does one need in order to install Gentoo? It's not like installing Mandrake or SuSE, right? I'm somewhat familiar with the Debian install. Is it like Debian?

It's different because you are installing from source.  It's
not for newbies - you need to know Linux basics, or be ready
for a crash course!

The best way to see what's involved is to skim the Handbook:
