I love other distros, but gentoo definitely fills an important niche. And that niche, in many ways, is under appreciated. We're not all "ricers." To me, Gentoo makes freedom more accessible.

I couldn't agree more. I recently tried bringing an old laptop to life. Fedora - hated it, ubuntu - hated it, whoppix - i like but i'll stick with gentoo.

HA! this coming from me, a former MS addict. I finally understand what they've been saying about command line interfaces! sheesh, i am a geek.
