Any installation of sabayon is slow... Even when it uses binaries, the system optimizes for your machine arch.
Remerber that Sabayon is a gentoo,
is a compilation Linux.
the only disadvantage is the time to install or update,
but sabayon is a great Linux.
You said that is novice to command line, the bash.
the Gentoo handbook, gentoo wiki, an sabayoy wiki,foruns, have a lot of useful documentation.
Sabayon is a modified Gentoo Linux, and is Gentoo compatible.
The commands are the same...
I have in mind that you will enjoy. Sabayon is a great, baautiful Linux Distro.
