JavaScript Operating System

Someone has built a Unix like operating system using JavaScript and a web browser. It uses a lot of Ajax like functionality I’m not sure how useful this would be to anybody, but here’s the description:”It comprises a vir-tual machine, shell, virtual file-system, process-management, and brings its own terminal with screen- and keyboard-mapping.”I logged to the terminal in and played around a bit. All of the standard commands I tried worked! I looked at man page, and there are 55 commands currently implemented. This is pretty wild, but it doesn’t have access to your local filesystem. So it’s not very useful. The author says it is demo software, and I think this is another case of someone having too much time on their hands. 🙂
