Gentoo linux and debian both have programs that automatically download and install programs. They have emerge and apt-get respectively. This is what made me want to switch. I went with Gentoo because it seems to be updated more often. The installation of this seems to be the only downside. Even with the 74-page Gentoo Handbook, you can still mess up. And if you choose stage1 or 2 it takes a really long time to build certain things. But its so configureable. you can use the USE enviroment variable to configure anything any way you want. That is the good thing. One small downside that I personally dont like is that it doesn't include X in the default config.
