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."

"The installer of Sabayon Linux will be a slightly adapted version of Anaconda from FC5"

Great news! So I suppose it should be absolutely safe.

Well, no partition is completely 'safe'. It's up to people to use their brain and make sure they are not going to overwrite their partitions. But, I found the Sabayon partioner to be one of the easiest I've ever used.

It's much better than the partitioner included in the x86 Live Gentoo disc.
