Sabayon Linux 8

More busy than busy bees, we’re once again here to announce the immediate availability of Sabayon 8 in all of its tier-1 flavours. If you really enjoyed Sabayon 7, this is just another step towards World domination.
Letting bleeding edge and reliability to coexist is the most outstanding challenge our users, our team, is faced every day.
There you have it, shining at full bright, for your home computer, your laptop and your home servers.
Linux 3.2, GNOME 3.2.2, KDE 4.7.4 (4.8.0 available in testing repo), Xfce 4.8, LibreOffice 3.4.4 are just some of the things you will find inside the box.
During this cycle, we spent a lot of time optimizing critical packages at compiler level, ensuring unprecedented performances, tuning system responsivity under load and backporting power management patches.
What you find here is Sabayon GNOME, KDE, Xfce, SpinBase (bare-metal flavour for building your own ISO images), ServerBase (same but with server-optimized kernel) and CoreCDX, for those liking Fluxbox.
