 Thanks to Henry Chin for making this meeting possible!

 The original notice said Ajai was speaking on Ruby on Rails.  While
 that was an editing error, Ajai probably wouldn't mind a few more Ruby
 on Rails questions either.

                             Gentoo Linux

   "Use the source, Luke." In 2002, Daniel Robbins released Gentoo Linux,
   based on his belief in using source code to achieve maximum
   customization and flexibity.  The defining characteristic of Gentoo
   is Portage, a package management and software distribution system,
   somewhat similar to the BSD ports system.  As the most popular 
   source-based distro, Gentoo has spawned intense feelings in both its
   users and about its users.  This month is your chance to get some
   answers about the distro whose users spawn more conversation than its
   code, and find out the truth about Gentoo.  As a bonus, we'll have some
   Gentoo LiveCDs to take home so you can play with it yourself.

   Please join us on Wednesday August 30 at 6:30pm, as Ajai Khattri gives
   us a test drive of Gentoo, and answers your questions about Gentoo,
   Portage, and the benefits of a source-based distro.

   Please also join us on September 27, 2006 at IBM for next month's
   meeting. (topic to be announced)

 About Ajai Khattri
   Ajai Khattri was born in the United Kingdom, and after obtaining a
