I'm not sure when this transition happened, as profile USE flags have traditionally been a reasonable default set rather than a minimal set. This gives people who don't have much experience with Gentoo a decent chance at getting a working system on their first try. For people who have more experience, it's not exactly difficult to change things. -- Thanks, Donnie Donnie Berkholz Sr. Developer, Gentoo Linux Blog: http://dberkholz.wordpress.com
