What would be your top 10 OSes/Kernels/Hypervisors you wish would work with this board?

What would be your top 10 open source OSes/Kernels/Hypervisors that you would like to see working (eventually) with the StarFive JH7110, and JH7100, SoC’s (Listed in alphabetical order to slightly reduce my personal bias) ?

  • bhyve (type-2 hypervisor FreeBSD kernel)
  • ChibiOS/RT
  • DragonFly BSD
  • FreeBSD
  • FreeRTOS
  • GNU Hurd
  • Haiku OS (open source recreation of BeOS)
  • Kernel-based Virtual Machine (type-2 hypervisor Linux kernel)
  • KolibriOS (Written in i586 assembly, so a difficult port )
  • NetBSD
  • OpenBSD
  • OpenIndiana (distribution forked from OpenSolaris)
  • Proxmox Virtual Environment (type-2 hypervisor Linux kernel)
  • Qubes OS (requires Xen)
  • Redox (Unix-like Operating System written in Rust)

I left out almost all major Linux distributions in the list above just because there are so many (goto the wikipedia article on Linux distributions and click on the image to the right twice (found above “Timeline of the development of main Linux distributions”) and when adding the poll I was told no more than 20 items. And once the Linux kernel has been ported to function with new hardware and added to at least one Linux distribution the effort required to migrate those changes to other Linux distributions is relatively negligible, at least, when compared to a effort required for a full port to a different kernel and operating system. I’m sure the people supporting a Linux distribution do not think of it as negligible.

I know I missed lots, I do not know everything (I was limited to 20 items at most), so if something you care about is missing above add a comment.
