As already pointed out, gentoo the file manager is older than gentoo the Linux distro. I even contacted the maintainer of the distro when it was first announced, asking if I should worry about the name clash. He said everything was cool, and for a while there even linked to "my" gentoo's homepage from http://www.gentoo.org/. :) That seems to have gone away, though. I have a link in the other direction from the gentoo page at http://www.obsession.se/gentoo/, since it might help reduce confusion sometimes.

I don't remember exactly when gentoo Linux was first announced, but gentoo the file manager was announced under that name in September of 1998.

I think the file manager is much older than the distribution.

gentoo
Damn this thing kicks ass. Finally a fm worth downloading. Rarely does one see an app with so much functionallity put into it, especially an app as important as a file manager. Forget everything else and download this NOW!

It lays the cut straight and flys sooo sweet.

Gentoo Rocks
Alright, I'm biased - I know Emil, the creator of gentoo.

But that doesn't matter - gentoo still rocks. If you have gtk installed, you just must check out this filemanager. It's small, it's fast, it is straightforward and has tons of configuration options available from the GUI or from the (XML-based!) config-file.

And it comes with more than 100 icons for different filetypes as well as excellent documentation...
