I was happier with Gentoo for a long time, but recently I've become
less happy.  I find that the number of times I can't update because of
some really screwed dependency that can't possibly work even on the
uploader's machine, etc, has increased a lot lately.  This is probably
the big one because it is in my face pretty much weekly.

Which leads to: Gentoo docs are profuse but by and large suck badly.
It's very hard to find out how to debug problems with Gentoo
infrastructure, or how the infrastructure actually works.

Japanese input regularly seems to get screwed up for a while on both
LibreOffice and FireFox, then eventually gets undorked.  But since
this are both many-hour builds, it's not pleasant to deal with them.

I'm also far less than pleased with the most recent version of
LibreOffice, which is ugly, can't handle common Word files from my
employer, and crashes all the time.

So Gentoo quality control leaves quite a bit to be desired, IMO.

YMMV, and I'm not ready to switch yet.  But I'm much less satisfied
than I was even a year ago.
