Dragonfly as the base?

Hi All,

Hope that everyone is going well.

I have a project that will be on FreeBSD and needs to run just one
application (either a VNC client or RDP client which could be rdesktop or
Freerdp) and am trying to determine if Dragonfly BSD might be a good base
from which to build it?

I had heard somewhere that Dragonfly uses Mir as a replacement to Xorg so
as to keep the footprint size down but am not completely sure about this.

This is meant to be an super-ultra-thin ISO (smallest possible ISO livecd
footprint) that has just a single remote access client application and
absolutely nothing more while making the ISO absolutely as small as
possible. (The smaller the better)

I had investigated using Linux as a possible pathway but think that FreeBSD
could be a better option for what I want since there are a few
other customizations that I want to add in as well.

Any ideas or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance,
