Imagine the difference between going to the doctor for surgery, and being old by the doctor how to do surgery on yourself over the phone.
The 'standard' Gentoo install has no install wizard. You manually partition your HDD, set the mountpoints, unpack the system tarball, CHROOT into your new environment, compile a kernel, install the compiled kernel, configure the package manager, install the packages, and reboot [all while crossing your fingers].
[DISCLAIMER: it might not be in that order, but a gentoo install DOES entail all of that]

but still, the pulseaudio issues. i can't recommend ubuntu until they've fixed pulseaudio. if they ever fix the sound, the server install is pretty nice. its 2011 and they've managed to severely break something that worked fine back in 1998. sound judgement!
If you want Ubuntu without the bloatware, just go with Debian.
