Well, then let me be the 3rd to recomend gentoo. The servers I admin
at work are RedHat so I get plenty of RPM hell there. It's nice to
come home and sit in front of my Myth setup and just relax. Another
nice thing for me is that I can upgrade just myth and it's
dependancies and not worry about upgrading to the last FC version or
whatnot. My Myth box is still running a 2.4 kernel and old stuff all
over the place but I don't have any problems upgrading myth whenever
there is a new version. Some would say Gentoo is not a stable platform
but I say it's as stable as you want it to be.
