"Sabayon's Sicilian Serendipity: No place on earth is a more prototypical reflection of Italian culture than Sicily. Lying in the alluring isolation of the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily embodies the Italian love of life, culture, relationships, and community. Sabayon Linux was the brainchild of Fabio Erculiani, who named his new distribution after a desert in his beloved Italian homeland, Zabaione. Sabayon brings ease-of-use and a strong sense of community to the Linux landscape. It complements the bigger GNU/linux distributions very well, and Sabayon is based on Gentoo Linux. Sabayon Linux recently made news by refusing to upgrade its latest version, 6.0, to Gnome 3.0. Instead, the Sabayon team decided to stick with the more conventional and less controversial Gnome 2.32.2. Sabayon also decided to dump OpenOffice in favor of Libreoffice, as have most distributions. Sabayon also recently added support for the popular btrfs file system."
