More busy than busy bees, we're once again here to announce the immediate availability of Sabayon 7. If you really enjoyed Sabayon 6, this will be even more fun and cute.
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 3.0, GNOME 3.2, KDE 4.7, Xfce 4.8, LibreOffice 3.4 are just some of the things you will find inside the box.
During this cycle, the development team spent a lot of time on integrating GNOME 3.2 the way users might actually start to love it.
At the same time, Sabayon Xfce has been promoted to non-experimental release, for those missing GNOME2.
