"...and keeping track of what's installed is a lot easier on Gentoo (which I sume you're alluding to) than it is on, say, FreeBSD. Not only that, but once you've used a package cd to install pre-compiled packages, you can then sit and use THOSE whilst your upgrades are compiling."

Please explain how it is "a lot easier" to see what's installed on Gentoo than typing "pkg_info". Also, every version of FreeBSD for at least the last 5 years has had pre-compiled packages as well....
