Congratulations guys!

Haven't had time to play around with Linux in a while, should try it out again on my new x64 rig. Vista takes over a minute to boot. Boo, says I.

I’m guessing that ‘Sabayon-Linux-x86_64-3.5-r4.iso’ is 3.5 final, listed on ‘ftp://ftp.nluug.nl/pub/os/Linux/distr/sabayonlinux/’?

If so, it’s screaming down as I type :-D Of course I’ll seed later ;-)
