There’s probably a million things wrong with this that I haven’t thought about but it’s just the beginning of an idea. What if we distributed an OS over IPFS. I’m not talking about ISOs , I’m thinking more about the on disk OS.
Can we boot to a minimal OS that mounts an fs for IPFS storage, say /ipfs and set IPFS_PATH=/ipfs then mount ipfs as the root directory. Sure there will be the CID at the top but just chroot into that. Then mount an OverlayFS. It’s kind of dockerish but for bare metal. Maybe even make the overlayfs based on MFS. I don’t know. Just noodling around with the idea.
