    Thanks Gabriella for this work, really awesome! My team will love this.

    I chose LinuxKit in 2017 for the original linuxkit-nix work because it used Hypervisor.framework and there were only a few patches floating around for QEMU. Maybe it wouldn’t have mattered, but I remember LinuxKit being very fast, QEMU was kinda slow and I had to run QEMU as root for any networking.

    QEMU got stable Hypervisor.framework support in 2019. QEMU is definitely a better choice now!
