Then again, it has only been a couple years of hopping, maybe the time to settle just hasn't happened, I mean humans like to waffle on a lot of things for a while until they find what they truly want.

For me Sabayon meets my requirements perfectly (almost). Things work out of the box, it comes with tons of software you didn't know you needed, it is configurable as you want it, it looks great. Even the fact that you have to do a complete reinstall when you update is a benefit as it satisfies my need to do reinstall every three months.

It looks great as a live distro but i could not get it to install on my PC. Kept getting kernel panic at first boot. So here I am back with Sabayon, but the 3.4 mini this time.

I found many forums and posts telling me how but they all take like 1hr just to setup to do and 30 command lines, my only downfall. otherwise i am set for now. =] woot
