Why not just run it on Equinox?

Having said that, this would be an interesting exercise to try.  There are

application model and various services that are supplied by the Equinox 
framework) that likely differ between Felix and Equinox.

Re: Gui Support

Does anybody think about to use eRCP/eSWT with Felix?
