Gentoo Linux is a wonderful way to actually learn about Linux, about your system, and and to develop the confidence to configure, optimize, and debug your system.
Every Gentoo user will tell you how helpful the installation process was for enhancing their overall understanding of Linux.
The support forums are wonderful and heavily attended. Anytime I have had a problem I have posted on their forums and received a reply rather quick.
If you are curious about Linux, this is the BEST way to learn.
Either you can choose to stay fearful of the installation process or you can choose to attack your fears and learn from the experience. I chose to attack and learn and I am glad I did.
Once you have a system you never have to upgrade as the online package manager (called portage) will download all the new versions of everything from the GUIs to the kernels, from the DEs to the WMs.
