I have been using the various versions of Sabayon for about two years. With capable hardware SL is a pleasure to use. The desktop that I presently use is Gnome with Compiz-fusion, a wallpaper changer (over 1000 wallpapers), Avant Window Navigator, and various Screenlets. With all this the desktop is impressive on a 37 inch 1080p HDTV.
The Samba problem was quickly fixed once the Sabayon team was told of the problem (it was only on the KDE side--SAMBA worked fine on the Gnome side).
Every OS is a work in progress, and Sabayon is no exception, but given the variety of hardware out there, SL is so good. There are so many programs availblae to you through the Entropy/Spritz package management that you can get almost anything you want in one form or another.
For those with less capable hardware, there is Sabayon MCELite which is great for inexpensive laptops.
To get SL setup to meet ALL your desires, I think you need a moderate amount of confidence in your computer operating knowledge. Given that caveat, you will love it.
