Familiarity, mostly.

Also, Gentoo works really well on more than just x86 (we're doing
stuff on PPC, PPC64, and SPARC).  I would imagine that Knoppix could
be made to work on those platforms, since it is Debian-based.  But the
official Knoppix CD system requirements say "Intel-compatible CPU
(i486 or later)".

Either way, I'm familiar with Gentoo, and I think catalyst is really cool. :)
