I've heard that Funtoo is a somewhat improved version of Gentoo, but I haven't been able to find any concrete sources for this. Funtoo's website says this:
Funtoo Linux features native UTF-8
support enabled by default, a
git-based, distributed Portage Tree
and funtoo overlay, an enhanced
Portage with more compact
mini-manifest tree, automated imports
of new Gentoo changes every 12 hours,
GPT/GUID boot support and streamlined
boot configuration, enhanced network
configuration, up-to-date stable and
current Funtoo stages, all built using
Funtoo's Metro build tool.
Are those features actually worth the trouble of choosing Funtoo over Gentoo? Is the difference that noticeable?
