Actually, I appreciate the comments and have been thinking of giving Gentoo a
try for quite some time.  The only reason I haven't is that I haven't had
much time to play with computers lately.  Too busy... maybe once winter
vacation rolls around, I'll give Gentoo a try.

You certainly gave me *excellent* advice when you suggested that I ditch Exim
for Postfix.  I've never been able to say "I love my MTA" until I started
using Postfix.  :)  I'll take your word on the OS too!  :)
