Gentoo I've been wanting to try Gentoo for some time, but always had to roll my eyes at the pages and pages of installation instructions. This time, however, I rolled up my sleeves and buckled down. Minutes later, I was on my way.

Summary: Slackware user finds that the distribution he uses and he is familiar with takes him less time to set up and gives him less headaches than a new one, which he has to learn.

Of course you're not learning Linux, you're learning Gentoo, the same way you had to learn Slackware once. Or you're going to tell me your Slackware knowlege applies universally to any other Linux distro? Given the results, I'd really say no.

Poor, poor article.

Your points are contradictory. Slackware DOES apply to other distros, Gentoo does not. This is why I had problems with Gentoo. Very little in Slack is custom - most of it is straight "out of the box."
