Package management solution's are portable to other systems. ive seen portage on debian. However the name of the game is to find something that works for the user, eg. it does not make much sense to make portage the default on ubuntu. We appear to be doing pretty well so far anyway.

comment Where to store media files on a shared linux server
Then i would put the data in /var/samba/ or something. However if it works, dont fix it, its good practice to only have files in your home directory accessible and read by you otherwise you run into problems with file ownership but if that's not a problem then dont worry about it.
