Sabayon 8 KDE review

Filed under
Linux

Sabayon 8 is the latest version of Sabayon, a part source, part binary, multi-purpose Linux distribution based on Gentoo. This is a distribution that I have often criticized for missing critical components and being very buggy, but the developers seem to have gotten their act together.

Sabayon follows a rolling release development model, which means that once you install a new system, you may never need to re-install – ever. It is a development model I think all distributions should follow.

While the project provides installation images for all known desktop environments, only those for the 32- and 64-bit editions of the K Desktop Environment, GNOME 3, and Xfce, have so far being made available for download. Going by the distribution’s release history, installation images for other (supported) desktop environments should be released soon. This article offers a summary review of Sabayon 8 KDE.
