I just read all of the comments to this article. One of the overriding themes is stability and ease/time of install. If you read ALL of the documentation:install guide, social contract, etc... provided on BEFORE you begin to install, then you will know that gentoo is aimed at people who want to compile for their system, tweak it to the utmost and have COMPLETE control over packages (developers, gamers and ubergeeks like me). Gentoo is NOT for the everyday desktop user. If you want pretty GUI's (that limit your systems configurability) then gentoo is not for you.

    I'm typing this message from my Gentoo 1.4 box (compiled from stage 1). It features a great GUI (KDE). I realize you were refering to a GUI for the install process, but I just wanted to make that clear to the casual reader.
