Sabayon Linux 8 debuts with a dash of Cinnamon

The Linux Mint project's new desktop interface is now included in the Sabayon repositories, and so is the Razor-qt alternative.

Most interesting of all, though--at least in my view--is the inclusion of both Cinnamon and the also-new Razor-qt desktop in the software's repositories.

Both of these options are responses to the increasingly mobile-inspired world of desktop environments, and both aim to give users new alternatives beyond GNOME 3 and the equally controversial Unity interface used in Ubuntu.

Given the widespread attention Cinnamon has already received, however, I think it's especially exciting to see it included.

Want to take Sabayon Linux 8 for a test drive, with or without Cinnamon? It's available as a free download from a variety of links listed on the project's site.
