Distro-Hopping Again: Confronting Distributions & Their Philosophies

For about one week or a little bit more, I have been thinking about distro-hopping again. I have enjoyed myself on Gentoo, I really have.

As I was recently suggested by one of my YouTube subscriber, I would like to explain how to install Gentoo. I will do every step I describe in a Virtual Machine, so that it is more clear for you.

This is how, after many a year roaming through the Arch realm, dear Phil Wayne made up his mind and took the plunge down the rabbit hole, straight into the abyss of Gentoo Land.
