if funtoo was a car, it would be a ____ because ____

i like comparing distros to cars.  the analogies never fit very well, and always break early under scrutiny, but it's still just a bit of fun.  so...  without any further a do...

if funtoo were a car, it'd be an aptera.
clean, white, simple, elegant and keen to share it's internals with you.



(ps, this feels weird as a first post on a forum. hi.)

If Funtoo were a car, it'd be a white Mercedes CL65 2011.
It's a seems to be a standard car, but under the hood, it's a super car tongue

And one of my neighbours own one damn it !!!!

If Funtoo were a car, it'd be a Green Mini Cooper !
Because it's light elegant thing made smart.

Re: if funtoo was a car, it would be a ____ because ____

If Funtoo were a car it would be a 1964 Studabaker Avanti r2 'supercharged'.
Design was decades ahead of it's time and extremely elegant. Supercharged
v8 also way ahead of it's time and WAY fast. Although it was a 1964 it had
disc brakes, power windows and A/C. The design was so far ahead of it's time
that the 1983 'continuation' Avanti looked identical to the 1964. Like Funtoo
they were hand built... lol

Growing up i had a friend who's father had a show car Avanti with many 1st place
trophies. About 17 years ago when the old man had stopped showing the car he
let me drive it and let me just say WOW. From 0 to 165mph in a little over 1/4 mile.
Way faster then my car but not as quick. My bird won't do 165mph but it will do the
1/4 in 12.3s with street slicks i have on it now.

A car? Are you kidding me?


If you ask me, funtoo would be a highly modified YT-1300 light freighter like the Millennium Falcon.
It looks like a construction site but in reality it is very fast and customisable. ;-)

Re: if funtoo was a car, it would be a ____ because ____

I always thought the Millennium Falcon was a piece of junk? My classic car WAS a $300 piece of junk when i got it as well and now well, take a peak... 'this was all done since my last post in this thread'

/me goes down on his knees and praises your skill, master of things! big_smile

Awesome! smile

"My" current Funtoo-like car would be: Every 3 months, I'd go out with my car keys, throw them away and pull out a new one. Then I take the next better which parks down the road. All I take out of my car will be the stereo.

Currently, somehow I switch my systems a lot, take only the configs for portage and the world file from the old system and build up from the ground up a new one wink I do not know why, but my private workstation is an everlasting construction site, because I get new Hardware with this frequency. While my 4 private servers running on Gentoo and Funtoo run, and run, and run, ....

PS: Even more funny / cool: Everytime the Install Guide is different ;D I Love using such a vital Distro!! big_smile
