I put arch on most of my machines almost a year ago, and it worked fine. Updating was fast, and if I wanted to try something new, it didn't take long to download. I particularly like the archiso package for making livecds.

Then I made the mistake of installing a gentoo chroot for a project. Now I'm putting gentoo back on everything again. It's obviously an addiction. :p

It puts me in the driver's seat. I have a toolchain by default. Patches, ebuilds, it's all text files. The tooling for building a distro is pretty good. Packages tend to be good about providing USE flags.

Most importantly, I can fork at will or maintain an overlay, if Gentoo goes stupid, and I won't be left wondering where to go. I can carry on where Gentoo left off.

Few distros do that as well as Gentoo.
