I used to get nervous doing the manual Gentoo install because it didn't have a nice GUI. Now, I get nervous doing GUI installs, because I don't know exactly what they're doing.

So, I would probably never use any kind of Gentoo installer on my personal systems, regardless of how successfully it works.

However, I think a GUI makes perfect sense for doing multiple identical installations particularly at the enterprise level.

Maybe a Stage 4 or a Stage 5 can do the job :)
