Gentoo's documentation may be excellent, but so is Debian's. If a user is going to be scared off by Debian's install, they will also be scared off by Gentoo's. I just don't see the point of mentioning Debian's installation process in an article about package management tools.

I dunno -- I've done some with Debian also, and frankly, I thought Gentoo was easier.

I think this was true, once upon a time.
Debian has too many paths to installation (and everything else) to make any of them well trodden enough to be absolutely streamlined. However, the new installer for sarge really makes things simple.

Me? I use debootstrap for the one command install.
