"Sabayon Linux is a very fun distribution based on Gentoo Linux.
That tidbit of information may be one of the reasons Sabayon isn't
more popular, although it shouldn't be. The mention of Gentoo
usually invokes visions of difficulty and hours of compiling to
Linux users. While that general assessment of Gentoo may be correct
overall, it certainly isn't true of Sabayon. In fact, if it wasn't
a known fact that Sabayon was based on Gentoo, many users might
never realize it.
"To end users Sabayon Linux is a fully functioning, complete,
and easy-to-use distribution. It ships with the latest in desktops
and software with lots of tools for setup, maintainence, and
configuration. In fact, it comes with lots and lots of software,
including a nice selection of quality games. Users can choose from
GNOME of KDE editions compiled for x86 or x86_64 systems. It also
includes 3D acceleration and proprietary Wi-Fi drivers as well as
codecs and plugins for full multimedia enjoyment."
