General Development ES is a fairly interesting looking open source research OS created by Nintendo. Runs natively on x86 (and qemu of course), kernel is written in C++, uses an ECMAScript interpreter for all of the userland, uses Cairo for graphics, and even has a port of Squeak.

Have you read some of the doc provided in the link? it seems that one can build component using c++. FAT is a simple and small file system that can be easily used on small devices. With JavaScript, because of its interpreting nature, it helps developers rapid testing i rekon. I don't know much about squeak so it would have some advantages on the device i guess. however, i guess there would be much c++ based development would be going on later. keep an eye on this if you are interested but telling that it won't work. please. grow up.
