Gentoo "It's been a while since I last reviewed Gentoo Linux because there haven't been too many significant changes in the past few releases. I've been using it as my primary desktop operating system for a year and a half, though, and I've been running my main Web/email/database server on it since October of 2004. There's a reason why I've stayed with it that long, both as a desktop and server OS - and there's also a reason why I'm writing a review of the 2006.0 release after a long hiatus from Gentoo reviews."

You say it's for hobbyists and tweakers, but I think that Gentoo is more for control freaks. But like you said... 'to each his own.'

And now on to my own personal musing about gentoo:

I've been using gentoo since around 03 and i'm still happy with it. I've only performed one install, but it's still going strong on the box i'm posting this from. I like knowing what is and isn't installed on my computer. I'm hesistant to try another distro simply because of my reliance on portage.

The forums and wikis are way better for getting to the bottom of problems than any other distro that i've come in contact with. Well other than the 'Off the Wall' forum which i'm currently banned from. heh...
