Sabayon is a Linux distribution described by its developers as “… a bleeding edge operating system that is both stable and reliable.” It is based on Gentoo, a source-based (Linux) distribution. The latest edition, Sabayon 7 (GNOME 3, KDE and Xfce desktop editions), was released October 10 2011.
The GNOME edition has already been reviewed here (see Sabayon 7 GNOME 3 review). This review is of the KDE edition, which made my list of the top 6 KDE distributions for 2011.
Though there are 32- and 64-bit versions available for download, this review is based on test installations of the 32-bit edition, which comes as a DVD-sized (2.1 GB), installable Live image. The boot menu is shown below.
