[CS-FSLUG] Sabayon

Amazingly, I am still using Sabayon as my desktop after all this time.  
It has done more just-plain-working than any other desktop distro I've 
used.  There have been blips, but the docs have been available every 

I am convinced that this is because Sabayon's basis on Gentoo, a non-
package-based distro, means that Sabayon is not dependent upon thousands 
of tiny package-teams which don't talk to each other very much.  Gentoo 
developers have to talk to each other for anything to work very much, 
encouraging a more effective cooperation.  At least that's current theory 
:-)  The most remarkable thing to me is a non-commercial project working 
much better than so many commercial ones.

Sabayon does also have a security-updates-only method of sticking with 
current versions of things.  And it has handled driver issues on one 
laptop (a 5-year-old Toshiba no less) and one desktop very well indeed.
