Sabayon & Acer Aspire 5050

Hi ppl,

I'm currently using Ubuntu Fiesty 7.04 on my Acer Aspire 5050. After a bit of tweaking, it works pretty fine, no complaints. I am however taking a look at Sabayon.

I am using my lap mainly for videos & games and I heard games in general work better on Sabayon. I'm wondering- is it worth the shift?

Any experiences w/ Sabayon & laptops? With an Acer Aspire 5050?

My priorities are:

2. Games
3. Video

Is Sabayon superior to Fiesty for those variables? Is it worth the shift or should I stick to Fiesty?

Thanx in advance!

Is Sabayon superior to Fiesty for those variables?
Sabayon is a variant of Gentoo, I'm sure those that use Gentoo would say its superior to Fiesty. But the truth is, "Linux is Linux" be it Gentoo Debian, Ubuntu, ext. The biggest differences are in the package manager, some distro's may focus on specialized packages for their OS, but any Linux distro can be setup to do what you want.

My opinion is if you are happy with Fiesty and you can do what you want to do, stay with it. Now if on the other hand you are wanting to learn about other linux distro's setup Sabayon on a separate partition and dual boot.
