[https://calamares.io/about/: Calamares] is an installer framework. By design it is very customizable, in order to satisfy a wide variety of needs and use cases.
  
CoreCDX is a very minimalistic cd that comes with the Fluxbox GUI.  It's meant for '''advanced users''' that want to take full control of what they want to have installed.  It comes ready to work with entropy or portage right out of the box with Xorg installed and configured.

Calamares aims to be easy, usable, beautiful, pragmatic, inclusive and distribution-agnostic.
  
This visual walk through will guide you through the (graphical) install process.

Calamares includes an advanced partitioning feature, with support for both manual and automated partitioning operations. It is the first installer with an automated “Replace Partition” option, which makes it easy to reuse a partition over and over for distribution testing.
{{Note| This is a Universal install, which means it's exactly the same on every ISO., whether you've downloaded the CoreCDX, KDE, Gnome, or Mate version.}}

fully customizable.  equo install terminal

Now you need to decide what package manager system you are going to use. I would recommend to start with entropy:
+
    # su
+
    # equo update && equo install entropy equo
+
Or you could select portage (generally recommended for more advanced users):
+
    # emerge --sync && layman -S

It's vital to learn how to work with the package managers - Please see:

You can upgrade the kernel if there is a newer one available using Kernel_Switcher on the command-line:

Welcome to the visual tour of Installing Sabayon.

In this Visual walk through we are using the MATE desktop spin. All Sabayon isos use the same installer.

Calamares is an installer framework. By design it is very customizable, in order to satisfy a wide variety of needs and use cases.

Calamares aims to be easy, usable, beautiful, pragmatic, inclusive and distribution-agnostic.

Calamares includes an advanced partitioning feature, with support for both manual and automated partitioning operations. It is the first installer with an automated “Replace Partition” option, which makes it easy to reuse a partition over and over for distribution testing.
