    Default Day before Sabayon 6.0 come out...

    I did downloaded and installed Sabayon 5.5. On my fast Uniwersity network.

    Update took more than 6h on my 1mb net connection at home :/ and still there 248 updates more.

    I'm lucky, am I not?

    Kudso to Sabayon for one of best live distros in the wild!!!

    IcedTea is OpenJDK with patches for the missing pieces

    Yeah, except the pieces aren't missing anymore in OpenJDK...

    Gentoo uses IcedTea. As do Fedora and Ubuntu. I don't know if any distros use straight up OpenJDK. IcedTea is fully compatible with Java 6, so there's no reason to switch to OpenJDK at this point really.

    From what I've read OpenJDK doesn't have the Java Web Start plugin, but IcedTea does, so that's one advantage IcedTea has.
    Edit: If I'm reading it correctly, IcedTea has a 64-bit plugin which OpenJDK does not. I guess OpenJDK has a 32-bit one?

    Seriously, how much is "Gentoo" in this Sabayon? Can I rebuild all packages for my system? Can I switch the profile and upgrade world? Can I remove several useflags? Can I modify their kernel a bit?

    To me, Sabayon is power of ubuntu, but not gentoo.
