I’m using the opportunity to experiment with Gentoo Linux. Wish me luck. At first glance Gentoo seems neat, but builing everything from source (which I used to do as a matter of pride) now seems merely time consuming.
I’d really like to make the thing into some sort of appliance, like I did when I developed PictureFrame Linux. If the filesystem were read-only, and served out as a network file from the server, there’d be less to get outdated and possibly break or serve as a vulnerability.
