LXer: Sabayon's Fabio Erculiani: "Users first and choice makes the tasty dessert among the distro's"


Published at LXer:

LXer Feature: 31-May-2007After a month of absence I visited Distrowatch again, and found out I definitely missed something. A new Gentoo-based almost Ubuntu-like* distribution - called Sabayon (an Italian dessert) Linux - seemed to have appeared almost out of nowhere, recently also including a full-blown portal website. This is even more true if you know Sabayon Linux only has three main developers. "Let's give this a spin" I thought, and I was stunned: "How did these developers made the most progressive but still stable desktop I ever saw, with out-of-the-box 3D-desktop experience and tons of applications - all fitted on a LiveDVD?" Soon, the distribution reached its preliminary goal of surpassing Gentoo at Distrowatch and became the fastest growing distribution of the last few months. To those who don't know Sabayon Linux yet, I'd say: "If less is more, than Sabayon Linux is most at least". So far so good, you may think, but Sabayon Linux' main developer - Fabio Erculiani - sees an even bigger future for Sabayon Linux, after funding issues are resolved. Time to find out who are behind this user-oriented distribution. [ * In my opinion it's better, but to those who haven't tried Sabayon Linux yet, think Ubuntu but more complete and more progressive - hkwint ]
