Press Release: Sabayon Linux x86/x86-64 4 Revision 1 Out-of-the-Box Rolling Release
We have released an updated version of Sabayon 4:

dedicated to Alan Fox

Ho-Ho-Hooo! Merry Christmas! On the behalf of the Sabayon Linux team, we're pleased to announce the immediate availability of Sabayon Linux 4. The foundations of our new way of doing Linux Desktop are now ready. Bringing a more accessible, easy to use and fast way of doing business and home computing in a Web 2.0 flavour is what we are going to achieve by the beginning of the new Year. New approaches, new ways of facing user-related issues start today. So, don't wait any longer, bring this magic to your PC and get ready for the future!

For you, Sabayon4 offers an easy to use and attractive desktop coming with thousands of tools and applications, such as effortless connections to any kind of wireless network, Web and Multimedia applications (Java, Flash Player, Google Earth, Picasa, etc), browsers (Firefox, Opera, Konqueror, etc), instant messaging clients (Pidgin, Kopete, aMsn, etc), multimedia and playback tools (Elisa Media Centerl, GeeXbox, VLC, Smplayer), productivity tools (OpenOffice, Abiword, Gnucalc, Kontact, Adobe Reader).

Technically, Sabayon4 has been completely rebuilt on top of GCC 4.3, for i686 (32bit) and x86_64 (64bit) architecture. As you can read, the 32bit flavour switched from i586 CHOST to i686, unleashing a further boost for all the supported Processors.
