10 Reasons Why I Love Sabayon Linux7:33 AM
- You can copy it over directly to a USB drive, no unetbootin required (dd if=sabayon.iso of=/dev/sdb).
- It's rolling release, so only one installation is required for packages to stay up to date.
- It's bleeding edge, with a 4 month release cycle (which makes it even more bleeding edge than Fedora or Ubuntu).
- It comes with a lot of the software I use by default (Google Chromium, Gnome Tweak Tool, Gimp, LibreOffice, Flash, multimedia codecs, etc.).
- It's incredibly stable for a bleeding edge distribution. Gnome Shell has not frozen on me once, and has only restarted once.
- It comes with any major desktop environment you want.
- It has TONS of software in its repositories.
- It takes the best from Yum, Apt, and Portage and combines them in to one super smart package management system.
- It's faster than most mainstream distributions (Ubuntu, Fedora, SUSE, etc.)
- Small, friendly, helpful forums that don't treat new users like they're idiots.
So there you have it. My ten reasons why I prefer Sabayon Linux to all the other distributions. I hope you learned something new about this small distribution and maybe even decide to give it a trial run.
