Project Pen Too: Profile 42 - Don't panic! Gentoo for everyone

The aim of this project is to provide a secure, easy-to-use, reliable Gentoo based desktop operating system for everyone on modern hardware. I.e. an image which can be written directly to a data medium, where all applications for daily work are pre-installed and which can be used every day. A operating system which belongs to you. That you can use and modify as needed and according to your own wishes. One that you own.

Having a secure operating system is one of the pillars for having secure communications.

There are a lot of people who have paranoia. If it is with reason or without does not make a difference. This project might help those people in need to have trust in a secure and reliable operating system that they can use daily.

I tried to contact some Mentors over IRC but did not get any response. This is the second day so I thought just to create the proposal for the idea.
