Yes, I understand that Entropy makes it easier to add apps quickly after installing, and since I'm most likely to come back to Sabayon when it's time to install a distro, that's fine. It is a little disappointing not to be able to test the specific app I'm after but I am sure I will find a Live distro somewhere that will let me give KOffice 2 a run
What I was wondering was why, if Sabayon shrank its D/L size, it went with a mini-DVD over a CD. Especially since that would have meant an even smaller d/l size,less bloat and one would still have Entropy for "filling in afterwards". Basically I'm wondering what the heck is ON the DVD that couldn't fit on a CD. Going by the list of available apps, I really couldn't see any more than were on the Suse CD. I get the reasons for shrinking, but don't see what edge the current size has over a CD. It is a riddle wrapped in an enigma and shrouded in mystery.
