I never thought I would say this, but so long Gentoo. I always thought I would be able to stick with Gentoo for most of my life, as it was an easy system to maintain, with a wealth of packages.
Unfortunately Gentoo has been going in a downward spiral for a while now, and finally the final straw has broken the camel's back.
These crazy kids just hard mask anything for fun it seems these days. XMMS, whether "buggy" or not, still works just fine for me, alot better than any of the other current music players out there. I see no reason to hard mask it. Who cares if it doesn't have a maintainer? It still works on x86 computers just fine. I know this gentoo person claims XMMS to be broken, but it works just fine for me. Maybe these days "broken" means they don't release a new version every two weeks.
Anyways, all this rambling is for nothing now, I am officially switching to Ututo.
