Is it possible to download the Entropy system and install it on another Linux distro? Or at least try?

Hi,
I think it is possible to do it on Gentoo.
You should be able to add the Sabayon Overlay and install entropy using portage.

Edit: By the way, you can get entropy on Git:

the entropy version that is currently used as stable is:
entropy-1.0_alpha37
the current testing version is:
entropy-1.0_alpha41

however entropy has been (in my experience) always very stable, every version that I tried (including the current testing one) has been crash proof.

yes is possible, in gentoo and gentoo like distros.
i made some tests of Entropy in Gentoo.
But i advise that Entropy only works in Gentoo based Distros.
