NO WAY

This is completely insane. I mean I get the whole “Turing Equivalence” thing, but still. Fabrice Bellard, who has written some pretty important bits of computing infrastructure, has created a fully functional x86 emulator in JavaScript! It boots up Linux and lands you at a root prompt. There’s even a compiler – and Emacs! It runs pretty well for me, with Chrome 11 on a Windows i7 laptop.
