Gentoo's emerge is based off of apt-get; the difference is that it compiles everything from source (except a very, very limited number of packages that give the option of binaries, such as firefox, which takes days to compile).

The first time through installing Gentoo is a bit of work, but you'll quickly get the hang of it.
Everything takes bloody ages to compile >:( ! (Yea, I compiled Firefox twice before I found the binary package).

Patience, Ergot. Patience.

No, and I hope I never have to. What kind of third-world distro are you running again :P? Not saying Gentoo is bad, it's just not for everyone.

When I used NetBSD, I had to compile everything with pkgsrc... ugh, firefox took 2 days even with distcc...

I generally like binary distributions, source ones are nice, but binary ones are for me.

Gentoo is nice if you're doing something that benefits from efficiency. I use it for all of my servers. For the average user's home PC, that isn't it.

I'm so sorry, if you need to talk I'm here.
One must ask oneself: "do I will trolling to become a universal law?" And then when one realizes "yes, I do will it to be such," one feels completely justified.

Send me an Xbox and I might come back.
I'd personally do as Joe suggests

You might be right about that, Joe.
