What is Jcenter?
Jcenter is the new one-stop resource for third party open source components, libraries, and frameworks. It is an Open Source software index established by Baidu's J-Team to help software developers find what they need. It is an open-source search engine that has many advantages over other popular search engines. Jcenter was created by Java fans for Java fans, with pure Java code and can be used for any purpose without proprietary restrictions. Using the pure search algorithm the index can be distributed. Finally, our powerful technology allows you to find what you are looking for faster than ever!
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.
