Honestly Gentoo's emerge is something I find easier than Arch's pacman, this is not up for debate or argument, i'm stating my view.
@LottieVixen I've been thinking about trying Gentoo so I'm searching for positive aspects of it, could you point out anything specific that makes emerge better than pacman in your view?
appeal Pleroma
@neon @LottieVixen I'm using a recent gentoo install. Just my two cents.

The good about portage:
* You can build software with the features you want/need
* march=native feels like it actually makes a difference on some programs
* The firefox version is perfect
The bad:
* Compiling takes a while, can't install software on a whim.
* Needs a lot of tinkering with config files
* oh, you need to change this use flag on a common lib? time to recompile everything!
The ugly:
* cryptic slot conflicts

I found it much more confusing than pacman at first but starting to like it.
