      INTERSTINGLY they you can run a linux kernel in JavaScript... http://bellard.org/jslinux/ (takes a minute or few to start up) if you want to see how crazy it is Tongue Out You need to know some linux command line commands to get around but the kernel seems to actually be running.

      You can use "uname -a, ls, dir, pwd etc" have a look in the /bin, /usr/bin or /usr/sbin directories to look at the programs you can run, even a little c compiler, so enjoy!

      Im also glad their planning to get parallel (better be without threads so the runtime can manage stuff) as I missed this live session and was going to ask about any paralellism of the JS code inside the Chakra engine, since it SHOULD be smart enough and know the ast and data flow of the generated code is to intelligently create safe concurrency.
