Gentoo Linux 2005.1 Experimental Live CD available with GUI installer

This is the first version of Gentoo to feature a graphical installer which in theory guides the user painlessly through the installation process.

The new version ships with the ever-increasing hardware support available in the gentoo kernel and in gentoo portage, and the GUI installer is able to handle most common modern devices. Very new and very rare devices are, like with all distributions, poorly supported.

The graphical installer makes it easier to convince your friend to try Gentoo, but the distribution still requires you to learn and understand basic command-line concepts.
