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.

Actually, this doesn't look like they're going to use it for more than experimentation. Just look at the licence terms, they're far too liberal ;)

I must agree that it looks like a weird technology, though.
