"Sabayon's Sicilian Serendipity: No place on earth is a more
prototypical reflection of Italian culture than Sicily. Lying in
the alluring isolation of the Mediterranean Sea, Sicily embodies
the Italian love of life, culture, relationships, and community.
Sabayon Linux was the brainchild of Fabio Erculiani, who named his
new distribution after a desert in his beloved Italian homeland,
Zabaione. Sabayon brings ease-of-use and a strong sense of
community to the Linux landscape. It complements the bigger
GNU/linux distributions very well, and Sabayon is based on Gentoo
Linux. Sabayon Linux recently made news by refusing to upgrade its
latest version, 6.0, to Gnome 3.0. Instead, the Sabayon team
decided to stick with the more conventional and less controversial
Gnome 2.32.2. Sabayon also decided to dump OpenOffice in favor of
Libreoffice, as have most distributions. Sabayon also recently
added support for the popular btrfs file system."
