I had heard the name, but I wasn't aware Funtoo was basically a reimagining of Gentoo by the original founder. I'm gunna install this.

MOD EDIT: No profanity please.
yrmt
yeah Funtoo is really cool.
CrossFold
Its so much Gentoo .. Seems like only the name changed ...
But I'm going to try this :D
simon

As simon mentioned, they use git instead rsync for the portage tree, and they have a slightly different tree. Funtoo also has some additional neat tools, and a **great** selection of hardware-specific stage3 tarballs.

For day-to-day use, it pretty much feels the same as Gentoo.
