Why not port OpenSSI to more distributions, like
Slackware, Archlinux, etc.

    It takes a non-trivial amount of effort to port OpenSSI to a
    new distro, but it's not terribly hard. Somebody just has to
    be willing to take ownership for the port of OpenSSI to a
    new distro.

    or independant from any distrib so it will work anywhere
    using the kenrel version

    like openmosix does since years & years.

    For the most part, openMosix is just process migration with
    function shipping of system calls back to a process' home node.

    OpenSSI is a much more comprehensive SSI solution, where
    every process on every node can see all resources in the
    cluster. To achieve proper semantics in this environment,
    it's necessary for OpenSSI to modify some user-mode programs.

    Our SSI-1.9 series kernel is vendor neutral.

    How about OpenSSI port for Gentoo?
