Java The JNode team has released the latest version of their operating system written in Java (it does have a small assembler nano kernel). "This release features the integration of the OpenJDK implementation of Swing and AWT, and significant improvements to the overall JNode GUI including improved painting and font rendering, generic VESA support and graphical console. The release also includes a new command argument framework for the shell, reworked shell commands, a configure tool for the JNode build environment, Samba file system with read/write support and many stability and bug fixes across the whole system." They have screenshots, a changelog, and (surprise!) a download page.

It would be ridiculous to expect Eclipse to run in JNode. In order for Eclipse to run, there must be SWT libraries available for the OS. It isn't really reasonable to port SWT (where most implementations are C++) to JNode yet.

However, when the time comes, I believe I saw somewhere that someone had created a pure Java Swing-SWT bridge. That would make the job a lot easier.
