I just can't sing the praises of Gentoo high enough.

The two major Linux complaints I've seen is this thread don't apply to 

1)  Craploads of services you don't want or need

Gentoo doesn't have ANY services running by default.  None.  You can't 
talk to it except from the console.  The only service that gets 
installed in a default install is ssh, but it's not started on boot..

2)  Who knows what was compiled into the kernel?

Gentoo doesn't come with a compiled kernel.  "Here's the source, you 
decide what you want in it."
