Really not sure what all these polls are about?

I use Sabayon for everything now -- all the above plus MORE!

This is the second poll on Sabayon usage.

Please try not to make duplicate threads or polls or unnecessary polls. (not saying this one is unecessary)

Thanks.

general home multimedia use for me.

anyone who games should be using XP, unless that play one game that they know wine/cerdega runs well.

for work use, well frankly, i would choose opensuse.

Thats a rather broad statement filled with incorrect assumptions. I dont really know of any windows based games anymore that wont run on cedega 6. There might be one, but I havent heard of anyone complaining about it yet. I know for sure that every game ive thrown at it works far better and improved functionality on Sabayon than in XP. Linux is now outperforming M$ on every level that exists in the PC world today. SuSe is a good distro, but Sabayon handles office apps much better IMO and, because of built-in beryl functionality, handles multi-tasking 100% better.

Download the GUI from transgaming (small.cedega.tgz or something like that). Put that file in /usr/portage/distfiles. Emerge cedega. Open the GUI after install and go through the setup wizard. Done! Install games using the "install" button and use the GDDB profile for it and your good to go. Ive tested all the latest and greatest windows games that I have on it and they all work flawlessly -- Oblivion, Dark age of Camelot, World of Warcraft, and Homeworld 2 being the big titles. Oblivion is the most advanced graphics based game of the lot so I know if it can run that, it can run anything. Whats more, if it can run in Cedega, it can also run in regular Wine with alot of tweaking on your part.

As navman says "to learn Linux".
Also, just for fun. I don't do "gaming" and don't work but "multimedia" is important to me and enjoy the Sabayon approach to appearance.
