From the Designer, Abec13:

"The Gentoo is a penguin themed, 65% keyboard that is a clear successor to my previously released board, The Adélie. With The Adelie paying homage to my favorite types of boards, sub 60's, it excluded the number row. For some, this was a deal breaker and I can't say that I blame them.

"Gentoo" is the name of a different species of penguin and as the name of this board works two fold: not only is this board the "Gen 2" of its predecessor, the Gentoo penguin, as you can see here, is a slightly larger penguin than the Adélie which I find aptly describes the relation between this board and the last."

    Gorgeous board. It needs a force break mod or case foam to completely eliminate a slight hollowness. But once this is done, I couldn't be more happy to type on it.

    CannonKeys are Great!

    This was great throughout the purchase. Cannon keys ensured to keep me updated about my purchase with monthly updates and offered a refund or replacement if parts weren't manufactured correctly. Overall, a really smooth and enjoyable experience.
