I have been using Sabayon 13.04 Xfce for several days now, and I'm quite pleased. I was looking to try a distro based on Gentoo, but with easy installation, and Sabayon fits that bill. I find that it is quite fast on my Thinkpad T61. The Anaconda installer was easy and painless, as ever.
Rigo, the GUI package manager, is too slow for my tastes, I prefer managing packages from the console anyway, regardless of distro. In this respect, equo is simple and fast. I haven't tried using emerge (Gentoo) to manage packages, etc., but it is an option. However, the Sabayon maintainers do recommend that you choose either equo (binary) or emerge (source), and not mix the two, which makes sense.
I have both installed and updated software and the system a couple of times over the course of a few days, and everything has worked flawlessly so far.
I would recommend Sabayon to anyone interested in a solid, rolling release, Gentoo-based Linux OS. Everything has worked as it should, so far.
