It's certainly a great project, but i can't help thinking : so now we're not satisfied anymore with running virtual machines to execute some code, we need the whole OS on top, along with the shell, and the preinstalled programs...

That story reminds me of the last time I tried to compile a blackberry app on my mac a few years ago : Java VM running my code within a blackberry simulator running inside of a windows XP VM on top on my mac OS.

Where will it end ?




People prefer this incremental series of hacks to the existential despair of being faced with a cohesive system, say a lisp machine. :-)
