That will be the important Q for real use cases rather than fun / interest - it will be interesting to explore what can be done with OWL as an exercise - it looks like most people use Alpine when they want small containers. My probable use cases would need Ruby and maybe Jekyll gem but even that would prob just be experimenting . . Have you ever thought about a minimal boot that could fit on (a) 3.5" floppy(ies) - would that even be possible? For years I have been thinking of getting around to working my way through the Linux From Scratch stuff as an exercise . .
