I do find it a little weird that someone who's willing to install 
hundreds of megabytes of source code, development tools, etc., and then 
wait for all of it to install would then decry Ubuntu as "too fat." ;) 
I guess it's all a matter of perspective.

Personally, I liked Gentoo but the downtime required for updating, due 
to having to wait for the updates to compile, was a bit too aggravating. 
  Now I run Mythbuntu.

I agree that emerge is pretty cool, in the same way the FreeBSD Ports 
Tree is cool.
