    I don't know if it's just trolling but I realize what Pi is all about. It sure is a great project, as I have already mentioned. However, it's not the biggest and not even the first one in this sense, being more famous in Europe and its former colonies.

    Also if you're gonna install Gentoo on it make sure you have weeks to compile everything. Not joking. It took like 3 days to do system update..... TIME TO TRY SLACK :)
