Some reasons I love the Gentoo Linux Distribution:
* Fast. Wow is it fast.
* Packages are up to date.
* FreeBSD-ish ports system. Compile everything from scratch.
* Awesome for home uses and personal stuff.
Reasons I *hate* Gentoo:
* FreeBSD-ish ports system. Compiling everything from scratch is awesome for home users, but when you administer hundreds of servers IT SUCKS. Yes, you can set up a binary repository. No, it's not easy. Every other distribution/flavor makes this easy. Why don't you make it easy Gentoo?
