I've just done pretty much the same, and for the same reasons, although
to Debian etch rather than Ubuntu. I will, however, probably make
Xubuntu the default distro for users' machines.
There's a lot good about Gentoo, but for a vanilla x86 machine the
performance gains simply aren't outweighed by the maintenance costs. I
now have to find other times to do all the things I used to do waiting
for Gentoo ebuilds to compile...
