I really like the Funtoo Linux way of doing things, the community is great. I see lots of strengths in Funtoo Linux. I need to study the main configuration options so I can really get the most benefit from it.

Any shortcomings are my own. I don't think I've ever seen faster, better, more polite and professional maintenance and follow-up than from Daniel Robbins. I was considering using Sabayon Linux. I don't like change, but I think that if I can get my processes together for setting up and running Funtoo Linux, I can get far better performance from my computers, and I don't mind taking the time to compile software, as long as I feel I am on the right track. I would like to know how to best get myself up to speed on getting the most out of Funtoo setup/optimization... I wish there were a way to take advantage of Funtoo through a Sabayon-like type of ready-built distro... If it were just me, sure, I can take my time and take as long as I want with setting up a Linux distro... my goal is to help get people to using Linux, and community education... it behooves me to be able to set up a Linux computer in a few hours so i can devote time to adding educational software and training others. I suppose I could do a build and use partimage, and go from there.
