OSNews, Generic OSes SqueakNOS is an old idea that has gotten the kiss of life again. Squeak is a Smalltalk system built by Alan Kay and SqueakNOS is an attempt to remove the OS underneath Squeak. You can download a VMWare playable image from their sourceforge website or you can get an iso and more details about SqueakNOS from here.

Will the CPU be next?

The next logical(?) step such projects take is to create their own CPU architecture like Java and Lisp before them. e.g.

* http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lisp_machine
* http://www.particle.kth.se/~lindsey/JavaCourse/Book/Part3/Chapter24...

However, I don't think anyone has taken the final step and reimplemented the underlying physics.
