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.

Member since:

NetBSD is capable of running in x86 and even on Dreamcast (Hitachi SuperH RISC CPU), with a gazillion platforms inbetween.

They can work on x86 while developing and then port it to a different platform.

Edit: grammar, grammar
