I switched to Gentoo after it became apparent that Mandrake x86_64 aka
amd64 was a second-class citizen, with cooker not only behind x86-cooker,
but behind x86-release as well.

It's therefore rather pleasantly surprising to see them now releasing x86
and amd64, same version, same time, same box. Apparently they got with
the program and amd64 isn't second class any more.

Still, Gentoo's more open than Mandrake was and it's a community based
distro with more control for the user/local-sysadmin, all three of which
were reasons I switched to Linux in the first place, so I'm happier here.
I believe I've found my Linux home in Gentoo.
