Please define veteran.
+30 years with linux and had a hand to hand combat with IBM, Microsoft
Seriously though, not all old timers want gentoo. For me, it's too much
trouble. I have better things to do with my CPU time than to compile
OpenOffice.org or Mozilla. But i do agree that if someone integrated
dpkg support to portage, it might prove to be an advantage. Think about
it, .ebuild files get updated more often than the debian packages (well
not always) and you get a bigger variety of versions. If someone wants
to have mono 1.1.5 in ubuntu (i had this dream last night) they would
just simply build it from an ebuild package and it would be made in to a
.deb and get installed.
This ofcourse means trouble in some cases, like building libc from an
.ebuild which would most likely end up as the last thing you do with
Other than that, i once said and said it often since then, 'Gentoo, 5
months and still installing'
