    wow!

    Mint XFCE uses between 300-350 megs of RAM after boot.
    600 megs is a lot for an XFCE environment.

    Sabayon has the advantage, and disadvantages, of being a rolling release.

    if one is after a rolling release openSUSE with Tumbleweed is a better bet.
    Manjaro (Arch based) should also be worth keeping an eye on this year.

    tnx for the review mrk! :thumb:

    ZevenOS is better, if you are fond of a nostalgic Beos theme. The underlying shell is all XFCE and is Ubuntu! :thumb:
