Yeah, a friend of mine tried to convince me that Gentoo was the right
distribution for me.  He then spent the next 4 to 6 hours trying to get his
Gentoo system to do suspend or hibernate, rebuilding the kernel, tweaking
USE lines, etc...  He had exactly the same laptop I did, which just worked
under Fedora and Ubuntu.

I think Gentoo is nice for some people, but I have a serious problem with
it...  You see, I've lost my immortality.

 The early bird may get the worm, but the second mouse gets the cheese.
