Gentoo Linux has finally released the 2008.0 release of their distribution.

Due to problems, Gentoo was unable to release any new versions of their distribution after the release of 2007.0, which was highly irregular.

Gentoo is an excellent distributions geared toward software developers and power users. This makes it powerful yet fast. The portage package manager borrows from the old ports system for software installation. And since usually most software is compiled from source just for your machine, it should run as fast as possible.

With the new version comes a better installer, a newer version of the Linux Kernel with better support for hardware, and the more compact, faster Xfce desktop environment instead of Gnome on the LiveCD installer.
