    Now for some questions. As far as beauty, is there anything you can pinpoint, or is it mainly the whole or the sum of the parts? And when you mention fast, can you elaborate a little on that. My problem is that I process photos and speed is important to me when I am running hundreds of photos through a program. So if you were to put a percent speed boost to your computer (as subjective as that naturally is) what would you put it at, your rough feeling?

    Right now I have about parity with XP, but no faster. I hear people talking about how fast linux is in comparison, but I have never been able to experience this

    Sabayon is very nice and quite a bit more responsive in my experience than Kubuntu. It's little too cutting-edge for me, though. I prefer my apps to be more stable than featureful.

    The default theme they use is the best one I've seen so far aside from the default theme for Ubuntu Dapper. The only thing I had to tweak was to turn off the subpixel smoothing (which didn't work quite right in Kubuntu either).

    Hard to place a percentage to feel. I have v3.20a and it is definately faster than ubuntu/kubuntu but then again i also use the 64bit version but i dont see that having a big impact as it will mostly benefit floating point stuff.

    My suggestion to you would be to try it, you will be suitably amazed.

    My XP feels faster than ubuntu/kubuntu but sabayon beats them all.

    Ya, I have the torrent downloading, but it is going to be a few days before I can install it. Just seeing if I can get experienced thoughts in the mean time

    Sabayon 3.26 is 80% faster then the most advanced Windows OS to date.

    Sabayon 3.26 is 90% faster then OS X.

    Sabayon 3.26 is 60% faster then any other Linux OS.

    Sabayon 3.26 is 70% faster then any BSD OS.

    At least on my hardware, yet this is just a gross approximation.

    Sabayon is the only Linux OS that can play DVD movies smoothly without incident by default.

    too cutting edge? while yes it is cutting edge it also happens to be the most stable OS in existence...

    Sabayon is Gentoo plain and simple, just pre-compiled Gentoo, Gentoo is the most Stable Linux OS in existence.

    The difference with Sabayon is they have done the work for you so in approx. 5 minutes you can have a stable, reliable and fast Gentoo OS running on your computer. The difference is this Gentoo is called Sabayon.
