"So how is it actually better than Slackware for devs? Or Gentoo?"

For one thing it doesn't need to be compiled from source by the user, nor do the packages. Secondly it's still easy to use as long as users have supported hardware and aren't so lazy they wouldn't breathe if they had a choice. It even has graphical configuration tools that the user can choose to, or not to use without breaking one method in order for the other to work. But most importantly, it uses RPM, and adheres to standards to make developing the distribution, and distributing software to users easier.
