I have 3 machines running Gentoo and I couldn't ever imagine changing to 
another distro either. I used to use Fedora and would put off upgrading 
to new versions because it would inevitably break everything and I would 
end up doing a clean install. Gentoo isn't versioned in the same way and 
just continues to evolve. No big upgrades.
