Sabayon runs Android Market / Google Play Apps natively

I’m sure this is going to blow your mind completely.

During the last two months I’ve been busy re-thinking the way Package Management works in Linux distros in terms of User interaction and I ended up designing the new Sabayon Entropy GUI using a “less is more” approach. In layman terms, the idea is to carry out all the activities through two, and only two, main “interaction points”: a search bar and a notification bar (for sending feedback to User).

But why not going further and supporting Android Market Google Play Applications directly in Rigo?
This is exactly what I did, and it’s been even easier than implementing the whole Entropy Package Manager thanks to the fact that Android apps are self-contained and no dependency management is required.

So, yeah, Sabayon now supports Android Market Applications natively, both installation and runtime execution (through the Dalvik Java VM).

    April Fool’s Day joke for sure. This would spark quite a bit of news just for the fact that many people would like to run Android apps on their favorite distro(s).

  7. Hey, this is crazy, you know, when you reach this article at Fool’s day, okay… But on the beginning of the May? Make you crazy! :D
