Updating sabayon linux
Advertising revenue is falling fast across the Internet, and independently-run sites like Ghacks are hit hardest by it.The advertising model in its current form is coming to an end, and we have to find other ways to continue operating this site.I dislike that the KDE flavour was preinstalled with so much bloat, but I can’t speak for the other flavours of the distro yet.Overall the system seems fairly stable minus the one KDE hiccup, and the Entropy package manager seems powerful and intuitive; a pleasure to use really.
So far I’m impressed with Sabayon, and I think it definitely deserves a good shot at becoming my daily driver.
It does however come with everything you need essentially, from Libre Office to Clementine, Google Chrome as the default browser, VLC, Atom editor etc.
A noteworthy feature is that Sabayon included a Sandbox (aptly named “Sandbox”) that when launched, gave me a terminal window locked inside a sandbox. Otherwise, Sabayon seems to be running fairly well.
Gentoo is a very powerful system, and behind the scenes the Entropy package manager still deals with the Portage package manager through some overlays, Users of Sabayon have the option of using it as a binary based distribution, or opting to make use of the Portage source system and essentially just have a Gentoo build.
You also CAN mix and match and create a hybrid, but it’s not generally recommended and there are specific steps you must follow, as read on the wiki.
