I started as a Solaris admin, and didn't get into linux until a few
years later. I began with Redhat, then went to SUSE, and now prefer
gentoo. I'll not assert that it is somehow "better" than the other
distros I've tried, but I like the feel of going back to my roots and
away from obfuscatory GUI apps that are writing god knows what, god
knows where. And on my hardware the start up times for typically
bloated apps like firefox are about half what they were in Suse 9.1
