"The delayed Gentoo Linux 2005.0 was finally released early this
morning. As previously announced, Gentoo Linux now defaults to
kernel 2.6 and older kernels are gradually being retired. Apart
from the usual security patches and package upgrades (to kernel
2.6.11, GCC 3.3.5, X.Org 6.8.2, KDE 3.3.2 and GNOME 2.8.1), there
seem to be no ground-breaking new features in Gentoo 2005.0.
Despite that, and despite the effort required to get it up and
running, it is hard to deny that Gentoo Linux is one of the most
educational and enjoyable distributions out there...!"
