Linux Kernal Running In Javascript

Fabrice Bellard just released an X86 Linux emulator written entirely in Javascript. In order to run this, you will need an updated browser with support of W3C Typed Arrays – which is currently limited to Chrome 11+ & Firefox 4+. You have full access to the terminal and can compile programs within the browser. There is no networking feature or any way to import or export content to this yet, but a fully working emulator running in JavaScript is always cool, especially when all the files total less than 100KB.
