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).
