just in the subject of spreading the word on how bad or good Sabayon is I just checked Feature Story by Jesse Smith:
http://distrowatch.com/weekly.php?issue ... 07#feature
Correct me if I am in any way wrong.
I am just wondering why is it that the article actually show flaws that may not be related to Sabayon?
Let's take this quote for example:
For now though let's focus on the Xfce edition, which is what I decided to download.
Some guy, whoever he is, has a lot of power to write an article about one distro but merely touches the system, doesn't really make a real effort to use the system in various ways for an extended period of time, download and test all version of SL and see what the system is capable of. For example how many features actually work out of the box that don't work on other systems, especially Multimedia with codecs.
And to quote further:
The distribution was able to properly detect all of my hardware on both machines. My Intel wireless card worked with no configuration on my part and sound volume was set to a low, but audible, level on both machines.
Isn't this an issue with the way Xfvce has is set up? Since I use KDE I also have issues with sound and setting up the microphone and it is the most cumbersome thing every time I install SL with KDE. But these are not Sabayon issues, are they? The KDE network applet was always a problem after a fresh install, but now on KDE 4.7.2 this has worked for the first time on my 2 laptops and I don't think any issues were SL related.
On the other hand, if you are, like myself, looking for something a little more predictable, a little more boring, then Sabayon probably isn't the right choice.
Who is this guy? What kind of a statement is that? Is that a word of professional?
A site so powerful like distrowatch.com should give us professional opinions, not private feelings.
Sabayon is THE most predictable of distros, that I know because I've been using many distros before and this is exactly why I switched to Sabayon - it IS PREDICTABLE, if I install the system it works straight out of the box and SL has never let me down.
All the main bugs and glitches so far were KDE development feature enhancements, constant migrations and changes from one version of the kernel to another, from one version of KDE to another and that is when any system can become less predictable. So far for the past ..... some 5 years if I had issues with new versions of Sabayon I could predict fixes would arrive in no time. I had other distros, but they've always been a big disappointment, because I would have to spend days and days to 1)find out how the system works, 2)to fix something myself by googling.
As for the recent SL7 we can see Sabayon is constantly improving, Linux has never been so sharp as it is now, both visually and under the bonnet.
