Welcome to Gentoo, a flexible, source-based Linux distribution that becomes just about any system you need—and much more.

Gentoo announces total website makeover (not an April Fool's) (Mar 31, 2015)

Thank you for participating in Gentoo’s 2015 April Fools’ joke!

Now that April 1 has passed, we shed a tear as we say goodbye CGA Web™ but also to our website. Our previous website, that is, that has been with us for more than a decade. Until all contents are migrated, you can find the previous version on wwwold.gentoo.org, please note that the contents found there are not maintained any longer.

As this is indeed a major change, we’re still working out some rough edges and would appreciate your feedback via email to www@gentoo.org or on IRC in #gentoo-www.

We hope you appreciate the new look and had a great time finding out how terrible you are at Pong and are looking forward to seeing your reactions once again when we celebrate the launch of the new Gentoo Disk™ set.

As for Alex, Robin, and all co-conspirators, thank you again for your participation!

The original April 1 news item is still available on the single news display page.
