I totally agree with Anselm I'm using ubuntu for the desktop, because
it *just works* I don't agree with most of it's design decision and I
totally disagree with the "code for the idiots" but oh well. At this
point in time it doesn't gets in my way and I'm happy with that.

I have to totally agree with the Gentoo is not for racers part. In
fact for servers if I ever manage a server again. I'll probably run
gentoo on it. Mainly becuase
1- you install only what you want
2- you build from source (this is good! for security)
3- SELinux is really good in gentoo.
4- Going to dev versions of needed (for patches for example) doesn't
means you need to wait 6 months for it.
