Sabayon 7 KDE review

Dec 05, 2011, 16:02 (3 Talkback[s])

[ Thanks to finid for this link. ]

"A new installation uses about 4.9 GB of disk space, with ext4 as the default file system, and ext3, xfs, jfs and btrfs as optional file system types. Since Sabayon is a rolling release distribution, existing users do not have to reinstall to have an up to date system. The simple act of applying available updates is enough to give existing users a system as current as a brand new installation. I tested the rolling feature while reviewing the GNOME 3 edition (see Sabayon 7 GNOME 3 review), and it worked as advertised. So I did not bother to do that with the KDE edition.

"Logging in And Using the System: Like its boot menu, Sabayon's login screen offers many more options than that of any other distribution I have used or reviewed. But those other options are not the focus of this review, so I will just stick to the KDE desktop."
