"Sabayon Linux 5.5 is the latest release of the Gentoo-based Linux distribution. It is also the first Sabayon release this year and judging from this distribution's release history, we should expect to see at least three more releases before the end of the year. Sabayon offers a separate installation image for each of the major desktop environments. GNOME and KDE editions of previous Sabayon releases have been reviewed on this site, but not an Xfce edition.

"This article is a review of the Xfce edition of Sabayon Linux 5.5.

"Installation: The latest stable version of Anaconda, the Fedora system installer, is the same one used on all current releases of Sabayon Linux. That means that there is support for LVM, the Linux Logical Volume Manager, RAID (Random Array of Inexpensive Disks), and full disk encryption. Ext4 is the default journaling file system, and LVM is the preferred disk partitioning scheme."
