What you missed is that the article talks about added flexibility when using gentoo. I'd understand people using Scientific Linux/RHEL for their clusters if it actually would mean less administration overhead and more stability, but for most HPC applications (which are very very frickle), it's the opposite. But I guess you'll find some acidly thing to say about that, too.
