Of course, the clone software that came with my drive says it is going to take 4 HOURS to finish the upgrade. Uggh.
If you want to try the bleeding edge, then Fedora Core is better for you. Gentoo is it not, only in the dev/unstable tree and gentoo is not easy to install. And Fedora has in FC5 mono, beagle, gcc-4.1, new xorg 7.0, kde 3.5.1, new 2.6.16 kernel and so on... and a good easy hardware support.
Here are some (older) screen shots, not with newer rhgb/gdm (graphical boot and gdm login). Very beautiful artwork from the new fedora designer(in).http://shots.osdir.com/slideshows/sl...se=554&slide=1
I think I have to do some newer sshots.
