Sabayon-7.0-Linux Update

Sabayon-7.0-Linux Update
If one is fed up with the changes happening with Ubuntu one has an escape route.
It is Sabayon Linux.
Sabayon is Gentoo derivative and has working XBMC as a media center.
Gnome three for me is much better front than Unity as it is now.
Sabayon has LXDE,XFCE,KDE and Gnome.
For me a KDE convert new Gnome gives a very pleasing experience.
Sabayon is the most complete Linux distribution available currently.
It even beats PCLinux since PCLinux is still behind with the work for 64 bits architecture.
Unfortunately it is not cloud ready yet.
My top five are (in my order of choice are)
1. Pingue Linux
2. Ubuntu Unity and its derivatives including Ultimate Linux and Ultimate Linux gamer.
3. Sabayon
4. PClinux Fullmonty.
5. Suse / Fedora
Mind you I have not mentioned my favorites.
They are Puppy Linux, Knoppix and DEBIAN.
There 95 more Linux distributions and i have all of them with in my archive for demonstrations.
I am fond of all of them equally and if I did not mention those 95, they are mentioned here at parafox and asokaplus.
You are free to browse them.
Reason for choosing Ubuntu is its ability have its nose in front and being proactive with Cloud Computing.
It is behind with Sinhala but blame goes to Sri=Lankan polity we were practising war games and still spread hate philosophy 2 years after and we have no time for our mother tongue with Linux.
Nobody should blame for lack of Sinhala but thanks to Anuradha Debian has Sinhala Capability.

SuSe 11.4 and Sabayon 7 LXDE

This is something I posted to a friend who had a problem of loading images from a Camera with SuSe.
I am bit lenient on SuSe this time,
As a part of my archiving I downloaded SuSe 11.4 (new version is out soon with lot of changes) and tested it on one of my old IBM (used for testing) and it is pretty good.
I have been critical of SuSe and vociferously and they seem to have listened to the user (not necessarily me). They have included ORCA (for visually handicapped)
It is better to download (not CD but DVD) it using torrent (not point t point) and keep it as a archive copy if you continue to use Suse. In few years time they will remove the iso when the new one is taken root.
I am not currently using it but this time thought of running it till January.
Mind you SuSe was one of my favorites till Microsoft got involved.
Like Microsoft it does not recognize other Linux derivatives (except windows) in my hard drive and I had to configure it myself.
I am currently downloading 64 bit image.
BUT if you do like to change there is a very lovely distribution called Sabayon 7,LXDE the latest (good for keeping your picture library), which is clean but have a problem with old graphic cards.
It is only 2 GiB and Suse is 4.3 GiB (bul has 7 desktop types including LXDE).
Sabayon has XMBC (media center which is a derivative of Gentoo Linux) and that is its virtue.
P.S.I am posting this SuSe booted up for a change.
