I love Portage.
Portage is an awesome program that handles all the dependency problems that come with installing stuff on linux. This program alone makes Gentoo my choice of distros.
For example if i want to install elinks on my laptop, all i have to type is
"emerge elinks" and in a few moments elinks is installed. I didnt have to go to a website and find the latest version, download it, and find a dependency that it just has to have. Also I get to compile it myself so that I know it is optimized for my system. I control the OS, it doesn't control me.
