why would Gentoo need to offer a binary distro based on itself?


Because there's an obvious demand for a binary distro based on Gentoo. The Gentoo Project doesn't necessarily need to be the steward of such a derivative. Think more along the lines of the Debian/Ubuntu relationship. Genbuntoo, if you will.

Sorry, but if you want Gentoo you will have to build it the old fashioned way-the way it was meant to be. You are defeating the core purpose of Gentoo with this idiotic idea of Genbuntoo.

Dammit, the original poster already explained this and you still cannot parse his logic. If you want *buntu install THAT!
