I have been using ubuntu for 9 months. I have also temporarily used lots of debian based linux distributions. I can say I have enough experience. But I am not sure if it is enough for Sabayon. In other forums it is said that only expert users can use it. It is a bit complex. I have just downloaded iso image. I just want to ask before installing. Can I use it? I just need your valuable advise about its complexity.
Thanks in advance.
I've been using Ubuntu for 3 years so I would say I'm an experienced user but Sabayon is much more complicated than I expected. I like working in the terminal but there are some different commands in Sabayon and also a package manager is something else than Synaptic. I strongly recommend read and learn Entropy!! This is not Synaptic so if you don't know how to, you can ruin your system. I had to reinstall Sabayon at least twice because I made unnecessary mistakes so learn it fisrt and install later....
Sabayon is my main system at the moment and Ubuntu is like a backup...
