"Sabayon is a multi-purpose, Gentoo-based Linux distribution. It is part-source, part-binary distribution. I just call it a hybrid distribution. The latest update, Sabayon 5.3, was made available to the public in early June. Installation images are available for the GNOME, KDE, LXDE and Xfce desktop environments. This review is based on the GNOME edition.

"The main purpose of the reviews published on this site is to give readers a good idea of what they would experience if they actually downloaded and installed the distribution on their computer. It is, therefore, necessary to highlight good features, or features I think will lead to a positive user experience. It is also necessary to highlight badly implemented features, or features that could give a negative user experience. For this review, let's begin by looking at the features I think you'll like on Sabayon (5.3).

"Anaconda – Because Sabayon 5.3 uses the latest edition of Anaconda, the Fedora installation program, you can configure full disk encrypted LVM just by clicking a checkbox (LVM is the default disk partitioning scheme). You may also encrypt individual logical volumes."
