DistroWatch Review of Sabayon Linux 7

Reviews: First impressions of Sabayon Linux 7 

,----[ Quote ]
| Sabayon's slogan, which appears when the distribution is booting, is "open 
| your source, open your mind". It's catchy, it's simple and maybe even 
| inspiring. However, were I to choose an alternative slogan it would probably 
| be "There's an edition for that." A quick look at the project's download area 
| reveals six different editions (GNOME, Xfce, KDE, Server Base, Spin Base and 
| Core), each of them available in 32-bit and 64-bit builds. And, indeed, the 
| project lists its number one feature as "variety". Judging by the editions 
| which eventually appeared for Sabayon 6 we'll probably see future editions of 
| Sabayon 7 featuring LXDE and Enlightenment.
| For now though let's focus on the Xfce edition, which is what I decided to 
| download. There wasn't any particular motivation for the choice, except when 
| in doubt Xfce is usually a safe option. Speaking of options, booting off the 
| 1.2 GB DVD brings up a menu which allows us to try the distribution in live 
| mode, perform a graphical install, perform a text install or boot into a 
| console. I decided to go for the graphical install. Sabayon uses the tried-
| and-true Anaconda installer, which Fedora and Red Hat users will recognize.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.10 (GNU/Linux)
