Pros: fast stable, everything works on my Dell Inspiron
Cons: none yet that I can see

I just upgraded from 5.0 where I had a few issues with Magneto and Entropy.
So far I like this upgrade I think the Sabayon Team has done an excellent job. It feels more responsive. That said I haven't been running it long enough to really wring it out.
I'm an old Gentoo fan on the ppc platform so I'm glad to see the work that has been done to keep the Gentoo core while making the distro easier to use by the more average person.
I recommend Sabayon 5.1 to any and all!
