I've run Gentoo as my main Linux distro for years now and I love it.  It
is incredibly fast ( you should look into how to optimize GCC for your
particular architecture ), and plus you're not stuck with just having
Gnome or KDE, you get no X whatsoever.  You should look into Fluxbox,
Enlightenment or XFCE-4 if your box is slow.

Anyways, try out doing a Level 1 Gentoo install and you won't regret it.
