Gentoo is easy to maintain once you have it set up correctly... but it's 
the setup that requires the software engineering skills -- well, 
sysadmin is probably a better term....  If you don't mind rolling your 
sleeves up and getting your hands dirty with config files and customized 
builds, Gentoo is worth the trouble (I recently switched from Debian to 
Gentoo and am happy I did -- so much more stable and efficient). But 
expect to spend the better part of a day getting things setup and 
working. If you just want to stick in a CD and get things up and running 
quickly, Gentoo isn't the solution.
