Sabayon 5.4 E17 review

[ Thanks to finid for this link. ]

"Sabayon 5.4 E17 is one of several "Experimental Spins" of Sabayon Linux released just this week. It is based on E17, version 0.17 of Enlightenment, a multi-platform stacking window manager and desktop environment. This is the first time in more than two years that I have reviewed a distribution using the Enlightenment desktop environment. It was still under heavy development then, and I thought it was about time I took another look at it.

"Installation: The installation program and process are the same with all the other Sabayon releases. LVM, the Linux Logical Volume Manager, is supported, and it is the default disk partitioning scheme. RAID and full and partition-level disk encryption is also supported. The boot loader is GRUB Legacy. Ext4 is the default file system type. Ext3, xfs, jfs, reiserfs, and btrfs are the other supported journaling file systems. See how to install Sabayon 5.x on a btrfs file system."
