Hi there. This is Gentoo. It's a good distribution. Yours isn't. You know why?
SECTION I: Community.
This is a very important factor when considering a distribution, as you don't want to share your opinion with illiterate 8 year olds. It's why I don't play Call of Duty, Battlefield, or DoTA. Let's look at Ubuntu's community.
(quoting from an actual post on the ubuntu forums)
Oh look! A technologically impaired person! Turns out, this isn't very uncommon in the Ubuntu community. Now let's see a typical newcomer to the gentoo community.
(actual post from the gentoo forums)
What a gentleman. He:
* Uses proper grammar
* Can Google his problems
* Is straightforward with his question
* Probably drinks fine wine, wears suits, is a connoisseur of aged cheeses, and has a monocle (or two).
Section II: Included software.
Included software is a necessity. If any modern OS came without a browsProxy-Connection: keep-alive
or command line, what would you do with your life? Let's see Ubuntu's included software.
* Bluetooth analyzer
* other generic software
Boring. Gentoo comes with exciting programs like:
* Funzip (It has fun in the name. Even compressing files is fun in gentoo.)
* Sandbox (How can a child's toy not be fun on Gentoo?)
* Mailbot (Robots are badass.)
Section III: Portage
apt-get install audacious
Have you ever been strapped to a bomb and the only way to deactivate it is to install a program, and the difference between life and death is a few letters? I have. Enough said.

True courage is the ability to face your fears for those you care about, no matter what the cost or terrified you are

Currently using linux mint 16 cinnamon .. It is forked off Debian and Ubuntu.
No complains thus far.
Installed on VMware player 6 without issues.
Only fault so far which pisses me is the new login screens.. some new login screens have weird UI ..
