Sabayon 10 Review: Gentoo on steroids!

Filed under
Linux

Sabayon is a Gentoo based Linux distro, created with the philosophy of "out-of-the-box" philosophy and it aims to give users a wide range of applications, ready to use and a self-configured operating system. I reviewed the Sabayon 9 as well and was pretty impressed by it!

I downloaded the Sabayon 10 Gnome, KDE and Mate versions. XFCE is also there but I wanted to try out the Mate version, which is new in Sabayon 10 release. ISO sizes are quite heavy, 1.6 GB for Gnome and 2.1 GB for KDE. Mate is 763 MB and is a stripped down version with very few apps. I downloaded 32-bit versions of all the distros.

Rest here
