will Fly support FreeBSD if/when Firecracker does?

It looks like Firecracker support for FreeBSD is on the horizon:

This is really cool. If/when this works out, will it be possible to run FreeBSD images on Fly?

It’s unlikely to happen any time soon. We have a lot of plans that involve BPF and our init, and that’s before the backlog of other os-insensitive things we’d need to clear before investigating new OS’s. It could happen in the future, but I don’t think it’ll happen in the near future.

Cool, will check back at some point. Consider my interest registered. Thanks!
