seriously though, no reason to run emerge world after an install, when you upgrade other packages or install new things, packages will be upgraded when needed. If it ain't broke, don't fix it

Yes,I agree with you.But Sabayon has to run on many computers and the installer copies the live-cd less or more on it.Regular Gentoo is build from the ground to your needs.With Sabayon you have to clean first your settings for your system,otherwise there will be compiled many things that are unneeded by you which will cost much unnecessary time.

emerge world is the right of every gentoo (and gentoo derived) distro user. Otherwise why bother with Gentoo or Sabayon Linux? It's the reason we chose these distros. Of course it's not as easy as it seems but nothing ever is.
