Gentoo Techgage has reviewed SabayonLinux 3.3 and concludes: "Fans of Sabayon will be pleased. Things just keep getting better. For those who have never touched SL, you should give it a try and see what you are missing. Even if you don't plan on changing desktops (like myself), it's one of the best distros to play with, or use as a Live DVD if you are on the road a lot. I had a few people test it out on Apple computers, and it works great there as well. No one is left excluded! Kudos to Fabio and his team for the great work on this latest release."

distro reviews/comparisons

Maybe this already exists, but it would be nice to have a wiki somewhere online that shows a comparison between the most popular distros, the pro's and con's of each, what you get with distro x that you don't get with distro y. Not in a "my distro is better then yours" manner, but simply stating facts. I think that would be more useful than general reviews that all cover about the same thing (installs ok, found hardware, comes with lots of packages, etc.) For example, are there compelling reasons for me to move from Ubuntu to Sabayon? Maybe so, maybe no. I couldn't tell from reading the review. But a comparison wiki, that was updated with each distro's release, would probably provide those answers.

At the risk of stating the obvious, have you found distrowatch.com? It's pretty much the best you're going to get in this area. Nobody really wants to do reviews like "Ubuntu to Sabayon: Why You Should Switch," because that pisses people off in a bad way. The best way is to read a few reviews of each (DistroWatch has links to reviews for each distro, or you can just use google) and do the comparison yourself. Everyone is different, and comparing two distros is significantly more personal than weighing the pros and cons of a particular distro.

Sabayon3.3 works well, but when I try to install it some errors occur and installing is impossible. When I try GNOME/Metiise and KDE/Metisse sessions it can't load. Probably it is VideoCard related, I do not know. FX5700.
