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.

                            Ajai Khattri
                            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)
