I have not used Gentoo in 10 years, but I remember compiling KDE for it on my x6 1055t and it taking the better part of half a day. How is it these days with faster CPU's and IO? Looking back on it I probably should have used some RAMFS for compiling from, but I didn't know any better then.
This install took 2 days, probably 1 and 1/2 of them of them due to an old outdated wiki and having to figure things out, the other was just compile times. So yeah about half a day. But I built everything. The kernel. Xorg when Wayland wasn't working. Wayland. KDE. Firefox, thunderbird, and libreoffice TWICE (once for xorg and once for wayland).

So yeah it's gotten faster. :)

I did that on a Pentium E2180 (a.k.a. "poor man's Core 2 Duo") and it easily took as long as downloading an ISO on 56K! (2010, on my second-newest PC at the time)

I did have my more powerful system of the time with a Core 2 Duo E4500 that was OC'ed of course. But it had Windows or what I don't consider an experimental Linux distro.

Honestly it's a pretty mean linux gaming rig. We'll see if I can survive on 8-cores when I have to do a world update though... I may need a 5950X sooner than later lol.

I have thought about dabbling back into, but i start thinking about the time investment and talk myself out of it, plus Arch has been working just fine.

It's rewarding at the end but totally not worth it vs the effort to be completely honest (I mean, it never really was lol). That, and their wiki is an outdated mess doesn't help things.

I remember when it would take over 24 hours to emerge OpenOffice.
Like downloading an ISO on 56K or of course, emerging KDE..... Even worse, back in summer of 2010, I had an issue where emerge forced me to include the extras flag or it will stop the compile.

I was advised once, to use the --quiet-build (or -q) option when doing emerge operations. It prevents that the computer spends Proverbially half the time spitting out prints about the compilation process.
I am not sure how much time is actually saved when not using a framebuffer and being on a modern high-end cpu, but it may still be worthwhile.

I remember when it would take over 24 hours to emerge OpenOffice.

It does not take that long anymore, and on PC-hardware one could install libreoffice-bin.

Isn't that just Tux? He always seemingly had a weird "please... kill me!" fake smiley expression for some reason.
Now that you pointed it out I cannot unsee that. :D

Backports give you access to newer kde versions. 21.10 by default comes with plasma 5.22. Adding backports lets you upgrade to 5.23.
Backports are coming from 22.04 which will have 5.23 by default.

LineageOS is an Android distribution, Android directly uses the Linux Kernel as a base. Android is therefore a version of Linux and thus, LineageOS is a version of Linux.

Is that clear?

Not according to certain people you can talk to on the internet but it does seem correct.

LineagesOS/AOSP/Android ROMs are not Linux distros and have never been because:

1. They don't contain absolute most GNU projects, even something as basic as glibc.
2. The Linux kernel in Android can be replaced with any other POSIX compatible kernel which Google has actually been trying to slowly accomplish.
3. Android does not use the vanilla Linux kernel. Google heavily patches it, Google uses their own private repo, Google doesn't upstream tons of Android specific patches.
That is an opinion which has no merit. Android uses the Linux Kernel. Android can open a Linux Terminal and uses 95% of the same commands. Android is a variation of Linux. Full stop, end of story. You can disagree if you wish, reality is something else.
