Any use in the Unikernel type approach?

As I understand it with a Unikernel type approach we would compile a single DNA with just the OS components it needed to be a single binary that runs pretty much standalone. People are working on supporting Rust with this process. I would think this could be helpful with older hardware and IoT type devices. Does Holonix already strip things down enough that this wouldn’t be that useful? Doe it rely on OS capabilities like multi-user and multi-process so that this wouldn’t be viable? I’m just curious.

holonix is a development environment based on nixos

ultimately happs are all wasm and they don’t rely on, nor support, any “external” functionality beyond what the holochain “conductor” binary provides/requires

not 100% sure that answers your question though :sweat_smile:
