Void was created to test xbps on the field, originally. This package system was, IIRC, created to work on a BSD system, so I suppose you can still install it aside from the regular package manager of your distro.
As for my opinion, the package system in void is not really the thing I like the most in it (notably, it lacks "optional" dependencies, an equivalent of debian's recommeds or suggests, it also lack an interactive package manager, last but not least, the package DB is an xml file, so I kind of have serious doubts about the performances here, compared to e.g. binary databases or /var/lib/dpkg/status, which is close to mail headers, described in `man deb-control`).

What i really like is the fact they provide a musl port, and that this port have noticeable performance improvements over the glibc. Or at least, had.
Performance improvements like, requires less RAM, might be handy on VPS or old computers.
