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.

"Why on earth? And why using such choice of technologies?
Squeak? Javascript? FAT as filesystem? this is horrible!
Doesn't seem at all like a wise choice for a next-next-gen system."

Yeah. And what's up with the Wii? Such a weak video card? Horrible CPU? The specs are nothing compared to the XBox 360 and PlayStation 3! This doesn't seem like a wise choice for a next-next-gen console. The Wii will fail horribly, I tell you!

What? They sold how many millions of those things? Oh, never mind.
