This category lists entries that provide information about the Gentoo/Linux Distribution. Among others this includes official sites, community sites, sites that provide additional ebuilds, reviews, help, tutorials and other information around the distribution.
Gentoo Linux is a special flavor of Linux that is normally custom-built on every machine and thus can be automatically optimized and customized for just about any application or need. This should provide better performance and configurability.
Small setup-files, called ebuilds, contain the information about how to build a package. When the user installs the package, it is transferred to the machine, compiled and installed.
