My experiment shows something else. X has never crashed in Gentoo. In 
Woody, it has crashed, same goes for Mozilla.

Gentoo is very stable, and their 1.4 version will be even more stable. 
There is also quite an little step for gentoo to start providing 
precompiled binaries.

It is very new distribution, and it is very promising.   

Debian will survive, but Debian can also learn something from others. Thats 
the gift of free software.

Gentoo is technically better and Debian is morally better. Which one will 
then gather more users? There are many small things in gentoo which make 
it better for at least random home user. 

If we look from http://www.distrowatch.com/stats.php?1#04 we can see 
that is clearly Gentoo.
