Interviews

Fabio Erculiani is the man behind Sabayon Linux, a fantastic, rolling distribution based upon Gentoo (but much easier to manage). Fabio does a lot of different things on Sabayon, from the desktop to the server level. You have to appreciate a person that eats his own cooking.

1. Who are you, and what do you do?

I’m Fabio Erculiani, the founder and leader of Sabayon Linux. But I’m also a computer scientist and freelance software engineer (I speak any language) with a strong background in Linux environments.

2. What distribution do you run on your main desktop/laptop?

My main desktop is running Sabayon.

My laptop is running, surprise surprise, Sabayon.

My home server is running Sabayon.

Our infra servers are running Sabayon.

Did I mention Sabayon?

3. What software do you depend upon with this distribution?

The OS, Debian, is completely open source and to avoid closed software the company has added an Atheros Wi-Fi dongle with open source drivers rather than use the built-in Wi-Fi chip. Read more
