Nintendo ES Operating System on JavaScript

Category: JavaScript

<p>Jon Hartmann pointed us to the new Nintendo ES Operating System that “is a fairly interesting looking open source research OS created by Nintendo. Runs natively on x86 (and qemu of course), kernel is written in C++, uses an ECMAScript interpreter for all of the userland, uses Cairo for graphics, and even has a port of Squeak.”

You can read a translated homepage and download ES 0.1.

It is interesting to see projects like this and Lively Kernel pop up, and benefitting from faster JavaScript as it becomes available.
