Wow, JavaOS!!!

I’ve often wondered how realistic it was to imagine a JVM without an OS. There have been attempts to create a full-Java OS. I discovered today that there is a project at Sun that takes the virtual approach. Instead of trying to create a full-blown Java OS, the Maxwell Project aims at creating a JVM that can run directly as a guest under a hypervisor without the need for a guest OS. From Olivier’s Blog.
