Sorry I have not responded but I really have not time for an in depth 
explanation. My recommendation is to jump on irc.freenode.net in the 
lunar channel and ask the folks there your questions.

As far as my allusion to speed goes lunar was built, on purpose, to go 
fast (and it does). It is also easier to install than Gentoo and this 
has been said by every Gentoo user who has converted.
