Welcome to Gentoo, a highly flexible, source-based Linux distribution.

Gentoo congratulates our GSoC participants (Sep 7, 2018)

GSOC logo Gentoo would like to congratulate Gibix and JSteward for finishing and passing Google’s Summer of Code for the 2018 calendar year. Gibix contributed by enhancing Rust (programming language) support within Gentoo. JSteward contributed by making a full Gentoo GNU/Linux distribution, managed by Portage, run on devices which use the original Android-customized kernel.
