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?
