In what feels like Day 5 in a two-day weekend, the system now boots! I
actually see a new grub (wait, why is that text-mode only again ? Fedora
guys, you spent years to make everything look graphical, because that was
some huge important feature that mostly got in my way when it took longer
than it was supposed to and I had no way to see why except reboot and
remove quiet and rhgb from the options) and now you suddenly let grub2 take
that back from you? Show us some spine, please), and the system shows me
plymouth again. Until it doesn't anymore, and drops me into a terminal
You know, this Fedora 16 better be frigging spectacular after this six day weekend.

Gentoo users are what Arch Linux users imagine themselves to be: real
men. You don't even get in their club unless you pass through the Klingon
pain stick ritual, where if you come out alive at all, you've at
least bludgeoned, bruised and bloody. What doesn't kill you makes you
stronger. And those who survive, are brothers.
Gentoo is a warrior, a kung fu master who can juggle the primal elements, and teaches you by forcing you to confront yourself. It doesn't matter if you're male or female. It's the essence that counts. And if that essence isn't strong, persistent and true, you will break. That is the beauty. That is what binds us together.
