I like how verbose emerge in Gentoo is. Here's an example message it left me when I recently updated Cronie:

>* Messages for package sys-process/cronie-1.5.5:

@hund I think I saw on your blog that you moved from Arch to Gentoo.

Can I ask, why the move? And, how do you like it (so far)?

@hund Ah, thanks!

... just read it.

I like that you don't make a direct comparison, but at the same time I'm kind of curious as to why you made the move 🙂


It more depends on the "package" maintainer I would say :)
