Sabayon Linux 4.1 KDE: Stable release

Postby lxnay » Wed Apr 29, 2009 8:23

Press Release: Sabayon Linux x86/x86-64 4.1 KDE
dedicated to those who have lost their lives in Abruzzo's earthquake

Dedicated to those who like order over chaos, to those who like simplicity over complexity, to those who think that less is more, to those that just want more for less. Sabayon 4.1 will catch you, based on Sabayon 4 LiteMCE, represent what can be the future of our Operating System: just the best of the Out-Of-The-Box, KDE, multimedia applications and nothing more than what you need for your daily tasks, but what about your free time? We've got it. XBMC (formerly known as Xbox Media Center) 8.10 is what you've ever wanted to build up a fantastic HTPC or Internet Multimedia Box, so what's better than having it ready to use? Show off the new Sabayon Linux to your friends, they have no more excuses to not try it!

Great, now I can finally reinstall (still running 3.5)

I have 1 question though: Which app is included to burn cds and dvds. K3b isn't completely ported to KDE4 yet, so as expected it isn't included in the LiveDVD. But what's included to replace it? I couldn't find anything in the package list...

I never got any problem with Sabayon GNOME, but I was waiting hard for the KDE one, and it's here ! It's soo cool :)

Many thanks to all the Sabayon team, that's great work.
