Why Desktop Linux Sucks and What We can Do About It
The point here is not the specific distro. Sure Gentoo has many benefits, which the strongest being its package manager(s). I'm on Gentoo too. The real point is that *any* distro that makes it easy to choose your own OS base-components is the solution to the problem. As it happens, the least intimidating *is* Arch, *and* it's easier to try it (Gentoo needs time for a first install). That's the reason I recommended it, not because I think Arch is "better" than Gentoo (which, as I mentioned, is what I'm actually using myself.)
