One good way to start the New Year is with a new Gentoo release. So lucky for us Gentoo 12.0 was announced today. It's available as its usual live DVD and features Linux 3.1.5, KDE 4.7.4, and Gnome 3.2.1.This release comes in two flavors: a hybrid x86/x86_64 version and an x86_64 multi-lib version. The hybrid will work on either a 32-bit or 64-bit (just choose which mode at boot). The multi-lib is for 64-bit only. Some of the other packages used this release are "Xorg 1.10.4, Xfce 4.8, Fluxbox 1.3.2, Firefox 9.0, LibreOffice, GIMP 2.6.11, Blender 2.60, Amarok 2.5, VLC 1.1.13, Chromium 16.0 and much more."All new for this release is: ● Writable file systems using AUFS so you can emerge new packages!  ● Persistence for $HOME is available; press F9 for more info!  This background is part of the artwork, lables, and covers for 12.0 Lots more information available at
