I know that. Perfectly. It so happens that the whole point of using
Gentoo is to build your own binaries. If you're goind the pre-built
packages way, why not do it with someone who has more experience :)
This is why I said the only argument one could throw at me is one which
is *against* using Gentoo in spite of Debian/Fedora/whatever... :)
Gentoo is very nice, IMHO, but for me it is a time waster, and if you're
going the pre-built binaries way... well, why should I move?
But your mileage may vary :)
BTW, when I said: "no distro-war (...)" I meant it. That Debian jab
isn't going to drag me into a distro-war :)
