Portage, superior?  Um, no.

I ran Sabayon once.  Couldn't update the base system to the latest versions of 
the programs because the system had almost no dependency resolution at all, 
and I actually had to manually update each package, one at a time, to get it 
to update properly.  If I just tried updating like in Fedora, the system 
would die after the first three or four packages, reporting a missing 
dependency the system seemed incapable of doing itself.
