The great thing about gentoo is that it makes you learn your computer inside and out. I hated the command line when I first started with computers and now it's like where is terminal or konsole. Some just want everything to work without knowing why and some want to know everything possible.
Do I have to learn and memmorise all these commands and meanings to work on Sabayon?

no you do not, its just that some tools are better and easier through the CLI

and once you start using the ones that are, you get very family and used to them

CLI can still be intimidating though, but there are some terminal apps that are brain dead easy :D

Just a quick comparison from somebody who runs a few different systems concurrently:
Edgy does not really compete on the eyecandy front - I still haven't got 3d working correctly
FC6 and Mandrake 2007 are polished distros offering a limited set of 3d effects pretty much "out of the box"
Sabayon offers all the wierdness of Beryl straight from the install and gets extra kudos by offering a default non-blue KDE theme (which there is probably a law against somewhere :P )
So Sabayon makes working on my computer fun - and that means a lot! Now if portage didn't take so flipping long to install anything -it would be just about perfect!
