My other box is Gentoo, and I quite like it.  The biggest problem I had 
with it was that about a year ago when I was give control of it, it 
hadn't been synced in like 3 years, and it was so woefully out of date 
that when I tried to emerge -upDN world, it couldn't reliably upgrade 
because some packages no longer existed, including core packages (and 
the system profile).

Other than that, the only problem I've had was when a Metalog (sysloger) 
update came out that caused my entire system to hang at boot because the 
portage package didn't properly move a couple of files.
