    Project mention: Arch and Gentoo - Best Surface Feature Support? | /r/SurfaceLinux | 2023-05-06

    Gentoo - I never did install it on my SP, and I'm pretty sure I won't now. I love Gentoo, and spent many a night compiling away, but when I started to look through things like editing the make.conf, I realized how much I appreciate Arch's approach. If you're interested in trying Gentoo on your Surface, there is at least some support in Gentoo for it, including this howto, this YT video, and this Gentoo overlay, (but again it's 2 years old).
