    "so many people"? like who? the same people that say a tangerine is so much better than a comfortable pair of blue-jeans?

    the 'apples vs. oranges' analogy is a bit over-used but wtf?

    whoever you are referencing should decide what, exactly, they want their system to do.

    Did you go to the website for that distro? Did you feel the love, and the sense of 'community' while there? The site was just one step short of playing 'kum-ba-ya' in the background and asking everyone to just hug.

    My guess, this thread is disguised spam, promoting another distro, or attempting to get a webbuzz started.

    Backtrack is based off of Slax while sabayon is based off of Gentoo. As for one being better then the other I would say they both have benefits. Sabayon is a very new distribution. I have also heard on a couple forums it has higher hardware requirements but that may be hearsay. If you are looking to do pentesting backtrack is the obvious choice. If you are looking for a version of linux to use as your everyday desktop I would explore other distributions like Sabayon.

    Well, sure, cause them people that use Yahoo chat are some of the most intelligent and well spoken people on the intertubes, just look at the descriptive criticism they gave of BackTrack3.

    Now let's go back to comparisons, BackTrack3, not meant for your average everyday Luser that doesn't know what a command line is, can't do a grep to save their life and thinks that upgrading kernel means changing to Orville Redenbacher's brand of popcorn.

    ...and that distro you're talking about that seems to think yet another distribution that copies Windows was needed.

    Yep, definitely, two peas in a pod, and worth comparing.

    What's next? You going to pull quotes from Wackmypedia or maybe /. complaining about Backtrack?

    Well if you are going to back it up with cold hard facts like that I feel inclined to believe this must be the case. But to be honest I did not see anything mentioned about the sabayon distro that would make a comparison to BackTrack suitable by any means.

    Heh, yahoo, AOL's red-headed step brother.
    Of course, if you really wanted to have some fun, go to Wal-Mart late at night and ask the greeter if they could help you find trashbags, roll of carpet, rope, quicklime, clorox and a shovel. See if they give you any strange looks. --Streaker69
