Hey guys I think that starting a Funtoo News letter or information source, an official Blog may suite our purposes better, would be a great idea for keeping the community informed about the things going on in the world of Funtoo. I think we could provide a lot of information once instead of answering the same questions over and over again. It would also be a good time to bring out the best that Funtoo has to offer. Here are just a few ideas that I have concerning frequency and content.

I think that it would be good to at least to start out with once a month and then as content increases to go to bi weekly or even based on the subject.

I think we should be real open handed about the subject matter but closed handed on the quality.  What I mean by that is I think we should include things from developer interviews all the way to user reviews (maybe a Q&A section), and really anything that strikes our fancy and is Funtoo related.  I also think that the quality of the content needs to be enforced.  Maybe having a couple of people read each article or issue objectively and then say yeah this is good before we ship it out.   Tell me what you guys think? Is this a Good Idea?

linux history

my first experience of open-source was early 2004 when I checked out blender (I had used it before in 2001, before it was open-source). I was using it in windows but irc chatter was quite abuzz with linux, so I checked it out.

I started with Fedora Core 2, and about 2 weeks later started with gentoo. The first install was handled by two irc users over ssh, which was a first for all of us.

around August 2004, I helped out with a little known binary distro called h3knix until 2005 (h3knix and arcane linux were merged in late 2005, died shortly afterwards).

resigned back to windows in 2005.

the next few years are a bit fuzzy.

in 2008, I got an Asus EeePC 901 (Linux ver.). Within a few days I formatted Xandros and installed Arch.

A few months later, it was formatted again for Funtoo.
