What is Gem?
A Ruby Gem is a package that contains code and executables. A Ruby Gem package allows developers to bundle up the code into a single package that can be installed through one process. Gem is great for shell scripting, system administration, and application scripting. You can easily open a local or remote file on the command line. gem goes beyond simply splitting lines of files; it does word splitting too. And you can check to see if two words are in the same group made of delimited words.
What is Gentoo?
Gentoo is a totally free Linux distribution. It uses the latest development tools and software technologies and is dedicated to quality rather than blindly following traditional usage patterns with binary packages and config files. Every part of Gentoo, including installation images, is free software; most of the source code is available to whoever wants it. Gentoo has been developed in an entirely open process, in which technical choices are made via discussion in email forums and IRC channels rather than by secretive members of some elite development cabal. Each package in Gentoo has its own maintainer who decides whether or not to include it; you are welcome to volunteer to Gentoo.
