⚠️ Thought experiment.
Could an OS exist that was hardly an OS at all, and all of its "apps" where infact containers, the GUI would be provided by the OS.
What would developing on such an OS be like, would it mean you could effectively write any technology stack and have it ship as if it where native.
Maybe it would be more secure by providing isolation for untrusted applications.
Could it maybe run these containers cross distributions and provide a compatibility layer for Windows Mac and Linux.
I thought this was an interesting question, I am a docker newbie trying to learn more.
Do you think this would work or even be successful? Hello Apple, want to buy my idea 🤣
Ps, what would you need to write to build a mvp for fun??
Wow those comments are fantastic, looks like all the components exist to do this, just needs a team to put this together, a developer focused OS, I may try and smash this all together to make a prototype.
