I wonder when we'll see a release that uses the 2.6 kernel headers and NPTL out of the box? Of course, you can make use of these now - by doing some extra work at install time - but they're obviously not regarded as stable enough yet for the core release images.
I'm hoping that 2004.3 will run these out of the box - and will perhaps even be based on a gcc-3.4 base!
But whatever, I've been running on Gentoo for 18 months now, and I've never regretted it for a moment. It's "fun" in a geeky way, very clever, and has a vibrant user community. I've never had any significant problems with my system either.
