I was afraid you were going to request elaboration here... Attitude 
probably isn't the right term... I used Gentoo for about a year and I 
guess it's more the community, the attitude of the community tends to 
lean into the product for me... but a few times when I updated my 
system, something critical went wrong, and it took days to 'recompile' 
things, and inevitably I ended up with 300 new packages getting 
installed, and critical things, like Firefox/Thunderbird would still 
require more effort to get working... I just got burned out on the feel 
of Gentoo, it's like it hated me personally for calling it's baby ugly 
or something, lol.... I guess that's what I meant by 'attitude'...
