I have a BUNCH of links open in my XU4 FireFox browser and it’s chewing about 100% of CPU (it can go higher than 100% as it is 8 cores, but still, I’m getting sporadic pauses). So… I’m going through turning some into bookmarks and just deleting other tabs. I’ve decided to aggregate the Gentoo tabs into this posting to make them easy to reach from any of my machines.
If you are not interested in the XU4, Gentoo, or how to install Linux on an ARM system, you likely don’t care about any of this.
It is in no particular order. Just grabbing the link and stuffing it here for the future. “Someday” I’m likely to go to Gentoo on the XU4 simply because, while a PITA to install, it is a SystemD(emented) free port. But not, I think, today; so saving the links is it.

A related, but different, derivative of Gentoo, Funtoo. Design goal is removal of some Gentoo PITA:
