It means that the distribution is build to provide choices instead of
options. It means flexibility in the development process. Gentoo provides its
users with a high-profile base system on which the user can do what he wants,
instead of use what we provide.
For a template, I think a combination of the terms "development" and
"choice" would be what users should feel when looking at the slide.
