I certainly hope so!

I've been with Gentoo pretty much from the beginning and it's the perfect distribution for me.
Nothing else comes even remotely close.

I just love being able to specify exactly which optional features of a package I need and especially which features I really don't (welcome to the power of USE flags).

Compile times should be of no matter on a fairly recent system and even if you need two days on older hardware it is worth it in my opinion.
OF COURSE it depends on the actual scenario and in what way exactly the computer will be used.

Not many other distributions can give me the freedom Gentoo does while still providing me with very easy to use tools to manage that freedom.
Gentoo can be as minimal or as bloated as you'd like it and I love it!
