I can tune it deeper and make it elegant, fast. Usually after installing Xubuntu I removed games, office, Pidgin, etc, but Gentoo is bare bones with good package management and community. Like you can compile JS library and get only what you want - with Gentoo you compile all your software (it easy and compiles automatically on install).

Simply the best and most secure. No need to trust a second party for binary code

The GNU/BSD/Linux... distro. Fully customizable and can run on just about everything. I especially like it with the software porthole, then i can install and repair softwares much easier than any other distros. Gentoo also have a great community, great documentation and great philosophy. The newbies use things like debian/mint/ubuntu/arch, so with gentoo, you get to rest with the most gifted users
