I used Gentoo for >5yrs befor moving to Arch and still believe that Arch
is closer to FreeBSD starting from init scripts to having support for
*both* binary and source packages and to me it is kind of 'sweet spot'
between Gentoo and Ubuntu in a sense that for the most part of the
system there are binary packages (I never really felt that my Gentoo
system was much quicker for the price of compiling everything) and it is
still very easy (PKGBUILDs are even simpler than portage scripts) to
build from the source.

At the end, it's important that we agree about the merits of Xfce. ;)

follow them are to be considered bereft of all knowledge, befooled,
