I came to register at the forum, only to discover that I had already done so, about a year ago! This is my first post, however.
I've been using Linux off and on since about 1999-2000, and have been through my share of distros. Most of my time has been spent using Debian. But I have since moved on to Slackware, and I find it to be a much better fit for me... wish I had delved into it sooner!
However, I've always been curious (although intimidated) about Gentoo, so I thought I'd try Sabayon to get in on the "ground floor" of Gentoo, so to speak. I have downloaded the 13.04/64-bit Xfce version, and look forward to installing it on my ThinkPad T61 when I get some time this weekend.
