My Gentoo boxes

I'm using two hardened Gentoo systems on a daily basis - for business and pleasure ;] One of them is a x86_64 non-multilib desktop and the other one is a x86 laptop - both are build using the gcc-4.x branch. The official hardened Gentoo is currently still using gcc-3.4 unfortunately; however, thanks to awesome work by zorry, xake and many others there's an overlay available that supports glibc-2.10 and gcc-4.3 and gcc-4.4! ;]

Information about the overlay can be found here. It has all the information required to enjoy a fully hardened, modern Linux distro - patience and fast box is still recommended! ;)

There is a nice installation howto and forum discussion too.

So why not treat yourself with a new shiny Gentoo? I can hear your compiler screaming... ;]
