[SOLVED] tried to move experimental, portage broken

Hi !

I have little problems these days with internet provider (I moved in semi-desert) so i did upgrade recently from a while, and it seems my system have some problems regarding udev (it wants udev-171, i really dont understand, because i know gentoo and funtoo block it), but more important i tried to "eselect profile replace 3 4" (so i tried to move experimental, because at some point i believed it could handle things better regarding another problem, was... just bulding that udev-171) so now emerge says ... "NO you cant !!" -seems related to profile, things like that- (even rolling back dont solve it, and even copying bin and pym from github to local portage) !

What to do next to make it smile ?
I thought the wiki page is outdated (talks about 2011 profile), but maybe i get wrong ?

Please, everytime that something go bad state in my Linux experience, i switch. I tried Debian (4 years, left for boredom), Gentoo (6 years, left because of illogical package maintain, i understand now that was not the fault of gentoo, but because of upstream), Windows XP, 7 and even 8, that's stupid but i want a Linux system that builds in my hands (like gentoo) and run fine (like Debian).
I'm serious.
Just my personal opinion, but i think part of Linux scene think moving from servers to desktop (mainly because they're not sysops, and also because they think that automount is the summit of Kilimanjaro -hey kde do that without systemd, and kde do a lot of fancy things also, i dont need systemd to replace those features-), and that's a bad move, because an init system that wants desktop related stuff... Windows ? You need to get serious to work in IT !! Or go and fork that shit to a "Linux-Desktop", but please people behind that stupid idea of systemd, stop fussing around saying something can work everywhere, everytime, in every universe... even microsoft understand that an O/S can't be identically designed for different use !

Tell me, it's not the time to go back to C64 ?? smile
