+ In brief, a <strong>stage 3</strong> is a minimal set of Gentoo binaries that can upgrade and expand itself (but not much more, i.e., no kernel
+ or boot loader). The desktop version already contains additional programs needed in a typical desktop installation. You have less initial compiling, at
+ the cost of a larger download. The installation CD can be used to boot and, well, install Gentoo.
