As I stated in my previous message, it wont stick, to have to keep doing 
it got me down! (maybe that's a Sabayon thing, but I doubt it!)

The forums are full of people moaning about this and other things that 
the devs have been seen to remove from people! (I guess you can't please 
all of the people all of the time!)

It no-longer concerns me as I have off'd Sabayon & Gnome 3 from My life 
and will stick with Ubuntu & Crunchbang for the time being!!

And whilst I'm here can I say a BIG thanks to the *buntu devs for 
continuing to provide an excellent operating system that (for me at 
least) keeps getting better!
