And ANOTHER reviewer that gets it all wrong.
Gentoo is not about "optimizing software for your cpu". Gentoo is about learning how your system works. About learning why a certain package has so much dependencies and others don't. About easily living on the cutting edge. About not relying on software packagers for your system.
But not about being user-friendly. Yes, gentoo is not user-friendly. Gentoo tries to learn users how a linux system works and takes you deep down into its core.
And gentoo should stay that way: a distribution for power users, that need the flexibility of portage (easily incorporating a patch, or using a CVS version of a certain package).
