Sabayon 6 LXDE, XFCE, E17 releases

And these are the last 3 planned releases before the summer break (wait, what break?). Have fun with them guys. Sabayon 7 is set for October 2011, with new exciting technologies inside (hopefully :-)). Of course, we’re always looking for developers wanting to join our crazy garage band. Come on, we’re waiting for you.

Anyway, back on-topic, the Press Release is here.

    I don’t understand the new numbering plan. It makes as much sense as mozilla releasing firefox 4, 5, and 6 in a six month period.

  3. I do not understand why it was necessary to increase the disk size from 700 to 1.2 such programs as:
    libreoffice – office .. only office workers – does not need to iso
    chromium – a bad browser – no need to iso, not useful to anyone
    shotwell – gallery pictures – not useful in the iso, only photographers
    Gimp – Raster editor – no need to iso, only the designers
    And this is the default program???? They take up 500 mb but in fact they are useless for this disc as the disc – the minimum operating system with XFCE4! Why do they need these programs?
    I am very unhappy with the drive XFCE4 😦

    You’ve read where the topic was discussed this issue .. majority voted for 700
    It turns out that size was overestimated spetsalno these programs just because the 700 is outdated? Why, then, is affected only XFCE?

  5. XFCE at 700Mb was pretty useless, trust me.
    That’s why we opted to raise it over 700Mb, since we also expect people dropping GNOME3 in favour of an XFCE system.
    At the same time, XFCE is pulling in too much GNOME2 bloat and you should really use LXDE if you care about it.

    The majority of commenters in my blog is not the majority of Sabayon users. We already got a bad review about XFCE being pretty useless as it was, and the guy was right.

    So, please stop crying out.

    it’s probably a matter of idealistic fulfillment…
    thought: who needs to install from a cd, CoreCDX + prefered looky-thingy (desktop environments would be the correct term 🙂 ) is minimalistic as it can get… of course thus KISS is a little compromised…

    humans are complicated 😐

    Are the ISO going to be easy to make bootable USB sticks?
    Is rather silly that while in Gentoo, Debian or Chakra you can make a bootable USB just with the googl old “dd” command we need a clumsy and complicated process or a third party utility like Unetbootin for Sabayon.

    what!? dvd.iso? cd.iso!? errr! is all so old and obsolete! we have usb sticks for this!

    but for gimp & comp i think is ok, we talk about a distro spin here not sabayon core! and in any distro we need office, graphics and music!

    if some of us think is too much software then anybody can just install sabayon core and build up in a very short time a minimal distro … is sabayon core not gentoo stage 3 or 4! this means no need to build from sources!

    Hi, I’m new to Sabayon. I have installed Gentoo once (5 years ago…)
    I love rolling releases – it’s natural to install a new version of some software to me.
    I hate to wait for long periods of time for new releases and I’m greedy.
    I want new software asap.
    I vote for full DVD releases.
    I vote for LibreOffice, Gimp etc..
    I intend to stick with this kind of a distro, especially Sabayon 🙂
