I'm a masochist. :) Actually, I thought it'd be
interesting to give gentoo a run. The hype for gentoo
is the granularity for building to the hardware.
Perhaps that's a bit over cooked but everything is
compiled from source. Gentoo's package system,
portage,  is configurable (CFLAGS, Keywords for
library environments, etc) and my sense is that it can
ease managing a system that's freguently updated.
Well, for me there's alot of learning to be done.

I definitely agree with your estimate of Planet, it's
a nice looking piece of work. During the next 30 hours
of scratching my head, I'll be to far into gentoo to
turn around and take advantage of Fernando's work.

Why did you mention Planet...I'm starting to question
my decision. We're gonna have to fight! :)
