"Sabayon isn?t just any rolling-release distro, though. It?s a ?true? rolling release, which means instead of being based on a development branch of its parent distribution, it?s based on a rolling-release distro itself. Since Sabayon?s family tree leads directly back to Gentoo, you?ll be hard-pushed to find a purer thoroughbred in the Linux field. We?re great believers in the rolling-release philosophy since it benefits and rewards long-term users with regular updates, the idea ultimately being to ensure your computer ?just works? without the biannual potential for catastrophic upgrades. Sabayon achieves this (Gentoo perhaps not so much)."
