"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."
