Gentoo Why Use?
I have always thought of Gentoo as the 133t Linux system. But, what are the real benefits over using Ubuntu i.e. PaX PIE/SSP.... sound really cool but can I just install them on my Ubuntu system? I know the Gentoo system I would end up with would have a smaller Kernel and such but dose this really matter in the long run? Is this negated by the time it takes to do other things in Gentoo that are faster to do in Ubuntu? I am reading the install docs and am planing to do a duel boot gentoo/Ubuntu.
What are your thoughs?
