I wouldn't reccomend Gentoo for most home consumers either, but it's an excellent choice for developers and the benefits are even more apparent on good hardware. Home consumers will probably be better off with Debian or user friendly, non-commercial Debian derivatives like Ubuntu, which provides a ton of really current packages for PPC architecture.
Arguably, var'aq is probably more widely used than Eiffel, but seriously the rest of those languages are important. A lot of businesses use Mono heavily now, and I think that it's absence is going to make it difficult for some companies to adopt YDL. Does anybody out there know of a repository where I can get Mono packages for YDL? While you may not use Haskell or Ocaml, they are both very popular in the scientific community.
