I probably should download an iso and give it another run, as long as I can still find the old red wallpapers they used to use and get away from the generic win blue theme all distros seem to want to use nowadays.
It's still a solid distro, although I don't much like their GUI package manager, Rigo. But then, I prefer the console for package management anyway, regardless of distro. As I understand it, the red wallpapers are still available in the repos, somewhere.

One thing I definitely don't miss about the older versions: music during the CD/DVD boot process! That sure slowed things down.

I always thought the music was a nice touch, that was just one more thing that made Sabayon unique.

Yeah, I have to say it was a neat idea, it's just that it really slowed things down on my old hardware. I believe at one point, they made it so you could boot without the music, so that was a good thing.

I've been running it here for about a year now, since Sabayon 9. Very nice distro, best rolling-release distro I've used so far. Can't say much about the Rigo package manager because I haven't really used it.
