i would ask him to show me the differences between ubuntu and RH or SUSE.
it's almost the same kernel and almost the same software.
the only thing is that there are other people working on maintaining the
release packages and other stuff.
i must say that john just kicked everything from your client words!!
i had an thing with a friend at work about comparing gentoo and ubuntu
on performance and scalability,
if you want to take a system that works period you use ubuntu.
if you want to start from almost scratch you will use gentoo.
but just remember that every time you need to install new software or
just update something you will need to recompile many things.
and one of that major things about OS is that you can use and maintain
it almost instantly.
well my opinion
