You forgot one thing. They love to spend a day (or more) finding why upgrading a package breaks everything. I guess that's the day saved over a week of intense computing.

It took me 2 years to setup a usable Gentoo box. Only 1/2 hour to break it and another 1/2h to switch to Ubuntu to get a similar system. Not better, not worse, but no more guesses.
