Java "After nearly a year of hard work the JNode team is proud to announce the release of JNode 0.2.5, the new intermediary development version of the JNode operating system. JNode is a free, open source Java technology base OS written fully in Java language (with a very small assembler nano-kernel). This release features OpenJDK integration, Java 6 support, substantially impoved consoles, experimental support for isolates and a large set of bug fixes and improvements to all parts of the system, including better memory mamagement and increased performance."

On Windows or Linux, yes, it's slow as hell. But since JNode runs everything on the JVM, it would of course be already loaded at the time you even log in to the system. VM loading time will only increase boot time, not the time to start an application.

(Of course, pre-loading the JVM could be done on any other system too)
