I setup several Gentoo boxes:

- a production server with LAMP, Courier-IMAP, Postfix etc.
- 3 desktop systems (1 at home, 2 at different offices) with all necessary daily stuff for web design, programming etc.
- 2 development servers with LAMP

All of these boxes run without any major problems. Some had Red Hat or SuSE installations before that caused much more trouble, especially when installing things without an appropriate RPM.

i use it for all of the above.. plus computer science homework and as a measure stick for other linux distros..

although i think it is a little unfair since i have spent so much time getting evrything working in Gentoo. but the materials are readily available and the results of me configuring things are usually better than those of other distros for obvious reasons.

It's my only OS :!:
So I use it for:

    word processing (LyX)
    (web) graphics (gimp)
    web development
    software development
    surfing
    playing/recording/editing music (GLAME is indeed very promising!)

The only reason I would consider installing some NT under vmware is if I would need to do CAD again.
