Linux forensics - Part 2: Protech 

,----[ Quote ]
| In this article, we will talk about Protech, a high-end hacking toolbox for 
| the enterpreneuring system administrator. 
| 
| [...]
| 
| Protech is a mighty tool. I'm thoroughly impressed. The distro is fast and 
| stable, it's good looking enough to become a desktop if needed, it contains a 
| broad range of excellent tools, as well as some unique programs that you do 
| not normally encounter in most distros.

Distro Review: Sabayon 4.0

,----[ Quote ]
| It may have been a while but I decided I should really get distro hopping 
| again seriously. I like to try out new software, it’s almost a geeky form of 
| OCD and besides, it makes for great review fodder I hope. Today’s candidate 
| is the latest release of a distro I first looked at some time ago, Sabayon.

| Today is a good day, the University of Informatics Sciences - Havana, Cuba,
| released Nova Linux, the Official Cuban Linux distribution and guess what, it
| uses Entropy, the most promising Sabayon Linux technology.

Sabayon 4 & future Entropy

| Also, it’s very probable that Sabayon 4.1 will be shipped in two forms,
| Sabayon and Sabayon Lite (DVD version with just one Desktop Environment and
| only selected applications).

Sabayon Linux 4

,----[ Quote ]
| Sabayon Linux began life as a binary shortcut to a fully working Gentoo
| system. Early experiences with RR4 - Sabayon's original name - ranged
| from "nothing installed" to "data lost." Fortunately, the developers never
| gave up and today Sabayon is a beautiful, functional, and stable Linux
| desktop distribution.

Review: Sabayon 4 Lite MCE (Media Centre Edition)

,----[ Quote ]
| SABAYON Linux's live DVD provides one of the easiest ways of getting a
| Gentoo-based system installed on your PC, and its consistent top-10
| Distrowatch listing is testament to its success.

Sabayon - LiteMCE - sneak-peek

,----[ Quote ]
| With sabayon Linux 4.0 rolling on it’s way it’s time to look at some sort of
| a mini edition. We are gonna spin out a mini-dvd instead of a mini-cd. There
| is several reasons for this move and I’m not going to go into them as I don’t
| want to hear comments of not having a dvd drive for whatever reason it is.
| It’s the 21st Century, get with it and get a dvd drive, even microsoft is
| moving to dvd format releases.
|
| LiteMCE stands for lite dvd version, multimedia center edition. It’s desktop
| environment is gnome. It comes with xmbc for your multimedia. If I recall
| correctly the dvd download will be roughly 2GB.

Review: Sabayon Linux 4.0

,----[ Quote ]
| Overall, I really enjoyed Sabayon 4.  It's a nice improvement from 3.5 in
| that it fixes many of the issues that existed (what few there were) and
| noticeably increased speed and performance.  The entire distro  is standing
| by and ready to perform for you in whatever way you want.

First impressions: Sabayon Linux Four Oh!

,----[ Quote ]
| Two years ago I ran into Sabayon Linux for the first time.  Version 3.2 was
| about to be released and I gave Sabayon a spin on my laptop. The article on
| my Dutch website about my experiences is still attracting a lot of readers,
| which indicates a consistent and growing interest in this Linux distribution.
| Strange enough, I wasn’t very lucky with later releases which simply refused
| to be installed. Two weeks ago Sabayon Linux Four Oh! was released. How far
| did Sabayon progress over the last two years?
|
| [...]
|
| So, coming back to the question: “How far did Sabayon progress over the last
| two years?” what is the answer? Well, Sabayon kept it’s strong points:
| bleeding edge, style and easy installation, and is adding a solid and fast
| package manager to extend your box.  With a distribution that is pushing
| forward as much as Sabayon is doing you can expect some rough edges,
| but -apart from minor issues- it didn’t hinder me from using Four Oh! for day
| to day work. The only set back is the speed of the desktop. There is
| definitely some room for improvement in that area. But, overall, a nice
| release. Kudos for the team. I will be checking Sabayon again in the near
| future.

The road to Sabayon 4

,----[ Quote ]
| Some of them are: KDE4, GNOME 2.24, 2.6.27/28 kernel, i686 CHOST, new theme,
| Entropy 0.24. To sum up, it’s something I’ve been working on since Jan. 2007,
| more than 150000 lines of code, AI.
