Opinions on Gentoo?

I downloaded the ISO last night. Should I install it in place of Redhat 8? Is Gentoo user freindly for a noob? I have read that it automatically takes care of dependencies which would be nice. And I think it uses apt-get? Which is supposedly very cool even though Im not that familiar with it.

I am generally happy with RH8, but Im still experimenting with different distros to see what each one has to offer.

Just curiosly what Gentoo users (newbies esp.) think of it.
