Why would Gentoo let you down? ;)
On PC-BSD you can do virtually all you do on Gentoo because you can play with the ports, just like Portage.

PC-BSD is easier to use as a desktop than Gentoo though, but if you want to use ports, you'll have to learn the FreeBSD synthax (pkg_add, make install clean, etc...), but it's not complicated at all ;)

Oh well. Sometimes you're forced to use 'unstable' to get the applications/packages you need. Theoretically this could blow up big time.

I don't think it will happen (since I've got some rather conservative settings), but who knows? It's just a matter of screwing up ;)

Learning a 'new' syntax doesn't scare me at all. That's the fun part of a new system ;)
