Parent article: An overview over the Gentoo community
Gentoo has some very nice features, but it also has this dangerous
sloppiness that makes me skittish.
I would say that Gentoo probably isn't for you then.
I like Gentoo because it does give me total control over my system, yet
does provide a certain level of help for me as administrator. But things
do break, and have to be fixed. For my desktop or laptop,
this is not a big deal - it's the price I pay for always having the very
latest of everything, configured exactly like I want it to be.
It is a pain in the ass occasionally, and I admit I don't like waiting
for compiles (I am currently compiling KDE 3.4.1 and don't expect it to
finish before I go home, for instance).
