Gentoo 2008.0 Beta

When we said "soon," even we didn't realize how soon it would be. 2008.0_beta1 is here. Your support and enthusiasm are greatly appreciated—thank you.

You can help make 2008.0 amazing! Test out this beta and report any functionality issues you encounter. Since this is the first beta, we're looking only for bugs in functionality, not bugs in appearance such as desktop backgrounds or other artwork. We expect to release a second beta once your testing has helped us fix problems with this first beta.

A migration to RPM was carefully considered again for this release, but in the end we decided to wait for the few remaining RPM-using distributions to migrate to the superior packaging format of ebuilds.

Get 2008.0_beta1 from the usual places

Hmm... 2007.0 was garbage, even the final version. It barely even installed. I think I'll skip 2008.0...

I couldn't get 2007 installed. Hopefully this is better and I'll finally get to try out the legendary Gentoo.

Did you guys use the LiveCD installer or the standard Gentoo installation? The Standard version is a real PITA but it usually works - LiveCD still is not out of beta as far as I know.
