I set up a production server on Gentoo. I regret that now. There are other things to do,and daily emerges to keep it up to date are a scary proposition. I always stayed in the office until everyone left, so if it failed, it could be fixed. When you don't do it daily, it gets even more scary. Now it's been running solidly without updates for over a year... But I don't think it's going to survive an update now. I think Gentoo on a server is a BAD idea.
