I used Gentoo back during the switch over from 2.4.2x to 2.6.x, when udev was a brand-new feature - back when Gentoo was a staged install of eather bootstrapping or pre-built stage 1/2/3 packages. I miss those days - has portage become easier to use or has portage been dropped for apt-get?

I seem to recall ebuilds being a pain in the ass to add, which was why I went off and switched to ubuntu/debian in the first place.

Question: why did the gentoo devs drop stage 1/2/3 packages for an installer approach?
