I have heard that sabayon is slow, i don't know if that's true or not.
Also, If one needs to compile a few packages such as we do from the abs,
should portage be used?, since it isn't generally advised to mix binary
packages and portage.

Also, have you tried calculate linux?

In any case i don't know why anyone would leave arch and want to use
systemd on sabayon :P
