Gentoo Techgage reviews Sabayon Linux, and conclcudes: "After taking an initial look at Sabayon, I have mixed feelings. Though, I feel more joy when using it than anything negative. One reason this distro may stand out above others is because it takes a difficult base distro, and opens its arms for new users who want to experiment. When it's all said and done, you will have a full functional Gentoo machine after the installation, topped off with a Sabayon coat of paint. What a great looking coat of paint it is."

You know a lot of people just make the distros for fun or their own personal needs, and just end up releasing it to the public. I agree that it does clutter up the choices available to a newbie, but there are distro quizzes and other handy tools now days to help someone decide. Plus most people trying out Linux wouldn't even take a look at Sabayon; it's a niche distro and people normally stay with the big 7 when first starting out.
So really, it doesn't do any harm, choice is good, etc. etc.
