"Amazing distro, beautiful terminal! "

What do you like best?

I have used many distros in the past, but i have to say that the latest weekly build for KDE is pristine, well polished and if you do what the documentation says you get a very smooth operating system. I also use High Sierra and Sabayan is snappier, faster and looks so professional for a free OS. Speed up your repos first, follow the excellent directions from the wiki and the update is painless and was quick.

What do you dislike?

No Gnome-commander or double commander present or available, only second rate two-panel file managers like tux-commander. No scanner like "simple scan", no disk-utility, no burner and no unetbootin, no useful calendar

Recommendations to others considering the product

Sabayon is rock solid, very good wiki, I have not ever had to search the internet for a solution to a problem. It also automatically install my drivers for my video card, Few problems I encounter was solved in the next release. If they would let you use more than ext4 and btrfs, when installing, it would be great

What business problems are you solving with the product? What benefits have you realized?

very very fast, actually is fastest than arch, debian and anything else you may try!
