"The Gentoo Distribution Kernel project is excited to announce that our new Linux Kernel packages are ready for a wide audience! The project aims to create a better Linux Kernel maintenance experience by providing ebuilds that can be used to configure, compile, and install a kernel entirely through the package manager as well as prebuilt binary kernels."

I like how verbose emerge in Gentoo is. Here's an example message it left me when I recently updated Cronie:

>* Messages for package sys-process/cronie-1.5.5:
>
>* You should restart cronie daemon or else you might experience segfaults
>* or cronie not working reliably anymore.

What do you like about Gentoo?

I'm asking because I'm writing a post about why I like Gentoo myself. I'm not that comfortable when it comes to writing anything but documentation, but at least I try.
