That's good to hear. I'm proud too, but it's unfortunate that we get
labelled as "ricers" , even if it is by just a few people. I'd say
the average Gentoo user isn't heavily customising CFLAGS etc... but
that's just my impression. I think the fact that Portage (heart of Gentoo
for non-gentoo-users) is being ported to so many other OSs says a _lot_
about it's usefulness and robustness. :)
