gentoo has been one of my favorite distros for awhile (that and debian, never been much of a fan of the commercial distros except rh 6.2, 7.3). the handbook has expanded so much and now they have the developer handbook that i would have loved to have a few years ago when i had more free time to even consider creating/maintaining packages
one of the few things that irks me are the qt/kdelibs recompiles that take hours and hours (this on a athlon 3200 + 1.5gb ram). most everything else that's not C++ compiles relatively quickly tho. i used their packages once upon a time on my laptop (2+ yrs ago) but they didn't stay up to date very well at the time
gentoo has made great strides in portage over the years and the forums have always been useful but their search function tends to be crap and returns tons of irrelevant results that have to be sifted through
