Only a little more responsive than Fedora or Ubuntu? Uh, that would be greatly disappointing for me, as Ubuntu is one of the the "slowest" distribution of all those I've tried myself. I rather imagined Gentoo to be slightly more responsive than Zenwalk and ArchLinux- and as per my experience they are way "faster" than Ubuntu.
