Re: OSv: unikernel targeting the JVM

It's good to see this taking off, and their use of the JVM is definitely more 
mainstream than Mirage.  There's been a rich history of JVM-based microkernels 
that have failed to take off though (including GuestVM from Sun/Oracle), so I'd 
be interested to see their performance numbers.
