Sabayon 5.0 Beta 2 Rolls to Testers

,----[ Quote ]
| I should also mention that a core-cd will be released for 5.0. I 
| donât know the time frame for this yet, but my guess would be after 
| the mini-dvds like usual. Responses from our core-cd are still 
| rolling in and they are positive ones.


Former Zenwalkers Do Salix OS Fork

,----[ Quote ]
| The end of May the Zenwalk team came to some disagreements with its 
| project lead Jean-Philippe Guillemin and some other team members. 
| The result is a new distro called Salix OS.



Gentoo Media Center

| As usual itâs not our intention to break the bank when building a media
| center. Now itâs true that you can purchase a number of beautiful cases and
| components to make your media pc blend in with the rest of the electronics
| that you may have in your home entertainment center but for myself I prefer
| to get some use of components that may not look the greatest but will simply
| do the job.


Sabayon Linux 4.2 KDE Review

,----[ Quote ]
| Sabayon is a Gentoo Linux-based, multi-purpose distribution. Previous
| releases of Sabayon came in one huge DVD iso image with the option to install
| your favorite desktop. However, the latest release is available in iso images
| distinguished by desktop environments. For example, we have Sabayon 4.x KDE,
| Sabayon 4.x Gnome, etc. This review is based on Sabayon 4.2 KDE. A future
| review will focus on Sabayon 4.2 Gnome.
| [...]
| The installer is one of the best. If you choose to use Sabayon in Live CD/DVD
| mode, and then opt to install it on your PCâs hard drive, you still get the
| same full-featured installer.


Sabayon Linux CoreCD 4.2 Release

,----[ Quote ]
| The CoreCD is a text-based release. There is no X-Server, Gnome, or KDE
| provided.
|       The Feature list is intentionally short:
|     * Bootable Image suitable for a CD or USB thumb drive (~400M)
|     * Text-Based installer
|     * Basic default networking
|     * Entropy and Portage ready


Sabayon Linux Gnome 4.2 Released

,----[ Quote ]
| Sabayon 4.2 will catch you: just the best of the Out-Of-The-Box, GNOME,
| multimedia applications and nothing more than what you need for your daily
| tasks, but what about your free time? Weâve got it. XBMC (formerly known as
| Xbox Media Center) 9.04 is what youâve ever wanted to build up a fantastic
| HTPC or Internet Multimedia Box, so whatâs better than having it ready to
| use? Show off the new Sabayon Linux to your friends, they have no more
| excuses to not try it!


Sabayon 2009 Roadmap

,----[ Quote ]
| Now that we released both 4.1 Gnome and KDE, we started working on next
| releases of Sabayon.


Sabayon Core Sneak Peak

,----[ Quote ]
| Lately I have been quite busy with many different (usually sabayon-related)
| things. A main focus is trying to come up with a a nice theme for 5.0, which
| is is proving interesting to say the least.

Version: GnuPG v1.4.9 (GNU/Linux)
