Okay, so I'm jumping into the middle here, but I just came from 18
months with Gentoo, and I for one, am VERY happy with the support that
Woody gets, even though it's years old, and that I can be confident that
each stable distro will have excellent bug-fixing for many moons. The
main problem I had with Gentoo was that it was SO fast that it was

on Gentoo and an install would be almost as big as with RedHat, which is
