I beg to differ. You know, the definition of "the best distribution" depends greatly on your goals. Gentoo/LFS is hardly a choice for someone who just wants a safe and functional operating system. For those who want to spend their time tweaking the OS, sure, all sorts of do-it-yourself distros are just great.

I for one couldn't be bothered to compile my software myself without a good reason anymore. I've grown out of that stuff. ;-)

To emphasize my point: all distros have their target group. There is no "one size fits all" -distro.
