I downloaded Sabayon 7 Gnome last night. It was a 1.6GB download, so it took a few hours. I installed it in a virtual machine this morning. I will look at it more closely tonight, but one of the things I have already noticed is that is installs XBMC (XBox Media Center). I don’t like it when people just assume they know what you want when it comes to stuff like that. We shall see what other things they have done ‘for your own good’.

I’m not so sure I like their package manager. It strikes me as a bit clunky and hard to use. That may be because it does some very different actions than Synaptic in Ubuntu and Linux Mint do.


 

Silly sign of the day:
