If you find the package system complete for your needs, if the package
system actually works.
Another question: if you had a new box and had to choose between Debian

I'm good enough at FreeBSD now that I can get through that pretty quickly.
This wouldn't be a server system, it'd be a desktop (FreeBSD will stay on
the server). Since there is more desktop software avail. for Linux than
FreeBSD plus FreeBSD tends to be slightly behind on the Xwindows front,
that's why I thought Gentoo might be worth a shot.
