Gentoo and Debian GNU/Linux have a lot in common. I'd give Gentoo a slight edge in that you can customize it more since you're usually building from source, but it can be a lot faster to use apt-get to install a binary.

I wouldn't want to upgrade a system without either portage or apt-get. :)

    hey all,

    i've been using gentoo for about 2 years. i've tried slackware, various redhats, mandrakes and debians. about a dozen different distros over the years. gentoo is a fast maturing distro that i reckon is the best of the lot. i consider myself just a joe blow user and gentoo provides everything i need. except.... see below

    i have zzxp doze on a small partition that i use for a taxation reporting software only. i can't even use doze update. not enough space and it ain't getting any more.

    take the time to learn with gentoo and you'll be rewarded with a sleek and stable system.
