I am moved to disagree (with caveats ;-) Having used Gentoo on a server
box now for a couple of years(?-ish) over a (hooray!
now-replaced-by-dsl) analogue leased-line (56Kbps)...
One of the BIG advantages in this situation is that I at all times
*know* *exactly* what software is on the server and why, plus having
optimised it for the old hardware sitting underneath, it still runs
reasonably quickly - at least well-enough for the purpose - more than I
would care to guess for any non-source-based distro.
