I moved to #archlinux for quite a long time. Eventually, I found I was using a lot of stuff that was in AUR but not in the mainline repo.
I have returned to #Gentoo because of its flexibility. I was already compiling a lot of stuff anyway. I wish Gentoo would get some of the love Arch gets. It really is fantastic if you take the time to get to know it.
@profoundlynerdy snaps are very weird yes, the idea of isolating everything from the main filesystem, dunno, I don't get it. But still it is not so bad and "just works". Maybe I like or need some training wheels...
I was into ArchLinux for 3 or 4 years and still have a server from this time, but it's not my kind of things anymore: I am a very messy person, on the long term I didn't manage to Keep It SSimple. Still I like the documentation Wiki though: nice source of information, even for other distros, I use it often.
Gentoo seems to be an interesting project, unfortunately I never managed to get into it. An important person from both the Perl and Gentoo communities died recently, it was sad
