This of course only applies to the Gnome Edition of Sabayon. Your mileage may vary when using the KDE Edition – will probably have to install lots of Gnome packages and their dependencies.

Just installed on my new company Lenovo T500 and so far really, really liking it. Multimedia capabilities by default are awesome, Wireless is working (I am still wondering why I had such troubles with a stock Gentoo install and the really well supported Intel 5100AGN), Font rendering is sweet. And after all, it is a Gentoo derivative, which makes it awesome by all means. Oh, I am using the Gnome edition.
