Sabayon Linux (previously RR4 Linux and RR64 Linux) – a Linux distribution developed by Fabio Erculiani, based on and fully compatible with Gentoo Linux. It uses the Entropy package management system that was specially developed for this distribution and Portage.

Entropy installs prepackaged packages which shortens the installation process compared to Portage. You can use Entropy with console or graphic user interface Equo or Ringo.

Sabayon supports x86 and amd64 architectures and is a rolling release distro, which means that you don’t have to install it from scratch after a new version is released. There are ready to go Live CDs/DVDs with GNOME, KDE, XFCE, MATE environments, a minimalist version with Fluxbox, which lets you customize the system according to your needs; and a version of SpinBase without a graphical environment.

To install the system on a hard drive, Sabayon uses the Anakonda installer known from Red Hat and Fedora.

Starting with version 16.06, Sabayon is also available for ARM machines (RaspberryPi).

The last version of Sabayon Linux are available for x86_64 machines only.

In November 2020, Sabayon has been rebranded to MocaccionoOS and merged the project with Funtoo Linux.

Centrych – a reliable, easy-to-use system that provides a unified look & feel, and support for both KDE/Qt and GNOME/GTK applications. Centrych has one desktop environment, based on Xfce with two distinct profiles as shown in the above images; one that has the Oxygen/Qt look of KDE, while the other that provides the Greybird/GTK look of Xubuntu.

Centrych has features not found in other Ubuntu-based distributions. For systems installed with full disk encryption, we’ve added the ability to do simplified-sign-on and quasi two-factor authentication, all our kernels are optimized for desktop use, and we’ve automated TRIM as well as added additional changes that can help improve the performance and longevity of solid state disks.

Centrych aims to provide newer releases of applications that are appropriate to release schedules of an application, not the OS. For example, GIMP 2.8 was an eagerly anticipated release that added a single-window, multi-tabbed capability. Another is Wine, currently the 1.4 release, which gives you the ability to run software written for Microsoft Windows. Both are available in Centrych.
