I am using Gentoo now. For servers, it maybe not a good idea to run Gentoo. Sometime it needs to build
too many packages for updating. Gentoo is a good way to learn and get familiar with package dependency. 
And you can install Genoa on clusters and keep it for a long time.
It is easy to maintain a Genoa machine and the only problem is building cost.
For FC system, it is also a good system. not fast as Genoa, but it is OK.
Li, Bo
