    Gentoo here, because of the wonderful package manager Portage and I kept breaking my system on other DIY distributions. All in all it took me about 20 hours to install though and two more weeks to finish configuring the WM and kernel.

    Arch Linux now set up...

    ... after 2 months of effort and a great deal of scripting. On the plus side, it's damn fast and there's nothing running on there I don't want :)

    Archlinux here :D

    works fine, wiki is brilliant, updates without problems, rolling release so no upgrade disks

    I've tried lots of distro's but Arch is my favourite

    Gentoo = takes forever to compile evrything, often breaks on updates
    Ubuntu = works ok, default install seems slow and bloated (pretty good if u want linux to be like windows)

    Voted Gentoo, I did install Fedora for a few hours which was great because everything just seemed to work but then I missed the ease of portage and the fun (and sometimes frustration!! :p) of messing with configuration files :)

    gentoo. It just makes sense.
    It took me ~ 4 days to configure drivers, modify the kernel and get all the binaries compiled.
