hahaha!  Compiled for your environment every time, though.  Set flags 
once for all compiling?  Not bad, either.  Like FreeBSD or Debian, but 
more thorough and faster!  Also, less typing for a system-wide update: 
"emerge sync && emerge -u world"  Of course, it can take like 3 days to 
completely update, but in that time, you're already enjoying packages that 
Debian or SuSE or *ulp* RedHat will have out in 4 months.  Using rsync 
instead of http and ftp - faster!  Also, there are no OS versions.  Once 
your system is fully emerged, it's up to the latest there is.  Only the 
installer cd has versions.  That's like being able to update DOS 2 to XP 
Pro SP2 with one command!

All of that makes Gentoo the best.  It's the most forward thinking POSIX 
OS on the planet.
