Sabayon Linux 5.0 arrives

,----[ Quote ]
| Sabayon Linux founder Fabio Erculiani has announced the 
| availability of the GNOME and KDE variants of version 5.0 
| of his popular Linux distribution. Sabayon, named after an 
| egg-yolk based dessert, is derived from Gentoo Linux and is 
| intended to provide a "complete out-of-the-box experience" 
| while being both stable and versatile. The major update 
| includes a number of bug fixes, performance improvements 
| and new features.


Gentoo Linux releases special edition LiveDVD

,----[ Quote ]
| The Gentoo developers have announced the availability of 
| Gentoo Linux 10.0 as a special edition LiveDVD to celebrate 
| their tenth anniversary. The project usually works with 
| rolling updates: every few weeks, the developers release 
| updated installation CDs that serve as a basis for new 
| Gentoo installations. Users then keep their systems current 
| by installing regular online updates.



Sabayon Linux x86/x86-64 5.o GNOME and KDE Released

,----[ Quote ]
| After a tremendous, though work, Sabayon5 is eventually here
| with a joint release between GNOME and KDE editions. Dedicated
| to those who like cutting edge stability, out of the box
| experience, outstanding Desktop performance, clean and beauty.
| Sabayon 5.o (five-point-ooh!) will catch you, anything that
| could have been compiled, has been compiled, anything cool that
| could have been implemented or updated, itâs there: you will
| find outstanding amount of new applications and features, like
| XBMC 9.04.1 (formerly known as Xbox Media Center), KDE 4.3.1,
| GNOME 2.26, E17, Linux kernel 2.6.31 and so forth.
| So, come on, go catch it, itâs half a DVD away from you!


Press Release: Sabayon Linux x86/x86-64 5.o GNOME and KDE


For me, Gentoo is about *convenient* choice

,----[ Quote ]
| Another part where choosing is made convenient in Gentoo are
| testing and unstable programs.
| I remember my pain with a Kubuntu, where I wanted to use the
| most recent version of Amarok. I either had to add a dedicated
| Amarok-only testing repository (which I'd need for every single
| testing program), or I had to switch my whole system into
| testing. I did the latter and my graphical package manager
| ceased to work. Just imagine how quickly I ran back to Gentoo.


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.
