I'm not sure I'd go as far as saying that gentoo does a better job than
debian--imo they are both very comprobable. I personally happen to like
gentoo's interface much better than debians. I think it's much simpler to
learn and understand--whereas the default debian interface requires a gnu
mind-set 'you _must_ read the docs and learn a bunch of one letter commands
to navigate and do anything in the app'.
All-in-all, I've been equally impressed with their abilities to correctly
resolve dependency issues and actually help me mitigate them, rather than rpm
that just dumps a 'required libxyz.so is missing' error w/o telling me in
which rpm it is contained, nor giving me the option to just go get it and
install it also right then and there.
