Hello Sabayoners, while I am new to Sabayon been a Linux user for almost 17 years now and cut my Linux teeth on Slackware then moved to Fedora/Red Hat and then onto Debian via Kanotix/sidux/aptosid. Currently I have this setup on my AMD64 system:
Aptosid (a Debian Sid based distro)
Sabayon 7 (a test installation)
Arch Linux (test installation)
Media Collection/Personal Documents.
Laptop (Thinkpad T42)
AntiX (a light debian testing based distro that has Fluxbox/IceWM as its main WM's)
I installed Sab 7 x86_64 edition a few days ago and liked what I saw, considering I've been so used to Debian as the package collection in Entropy has practically all that I'll ever use and hope it'll rival Debian's at some pont
The equo/entropy/sulfur package managers seem quite intuitive as I am familiar with Synaptic and dpkg/apt-get in the Debian world. Been looking for a distro that's easy to manage and setup as well as being on the cutting edge as Debian seems to be kind of stagnant lately.
Surely there are people who came from Debian/Ubuntu to Sabayon as well. Looking to make Sab 7 work for me and then perhaps take the plunge and dump Debian off the desktop. As KDE seems a bit heavy for the old Thinkpad I'll keep AntiX there for now and maybe look into setting up a custom Sab 7 install on it with a different WM.
Thanks for the goodies and here's to Sabayon taking up a permanent home soon on my big rig
