I'm running Myth on Gentoo, have been for about a year.  The choice of distros I think has more to do with your personal experience level and/or willingness to spend the time to learn what you need to know.  I know I learned a lot about *nix years ago with Slackware ('96 I think).. when I inadvertantly did a rm -Rf /  didn't think it was possible to delete in use files ;-)

That being said in the Gentoo environment you will may have to be carefull doing upgraded.  I find it's best at times to emerge specific packages rather than world....
