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).

Yeah, I mean a Funtoo Monthly News or even a Funtoo Weekly News is a really good idea.

And again, it will demonstrate that Funtoo is proactive and can handle new project without a council and that's really a good thing since Gentoo is going anywhere.

I also plan to translate the Funtoo Monthly News in French if we decide to go in that direction.
