Sabayon 5.4 E17 “Experimental Spin” Review

Filed under
Linux

Back in March, Mike reviewed the Sabayon 5.2 Gnome release and found it to be a well-rounded distribution with only some minor issues. Now, the new 5.4 release is here and includes what Sabayon calls “Experimental Spins”, which are installable LiveCD’s featuring LXDE, XFCE4, E17 Desktops, a OpenVZ version and ServerBase version as well.

The default look is rather bland with E17, so some eye-candy was needed and you can find many E17 themes and wallpapers all over the net; just google “e17 themes”, “e17 wallpapers”.
