Sorry, but in my opinion Gentoo beats them severely on both points. Hey, 
how many distro's can run on a PS3? And creating a new distro based on 
Gentoo can be as simple as creatign an overlay and continuing to use the 
main Gentoo package repository and mirrors for the msot part - Sabayon 
does this and is apparently the favoured distro of the Beryl developers.
