I like UNIX. I like Javascript. But for some reason, JS/UIX scares the bejeesus out of me.

JS/UIX is an UN*X-like OS for standard web-browsers, written
entirely in JavaScript (no plug-ins used). It comprises a vir-
tual machine, shell, virtual file-system, process-management,
and brings its own terminal with screen- and keyboard-mapping.

When you try this page out, keep in mind, you’re not connecting to a UNIX box, he’s reimplmented UNIX in Javascript. I don’t know what good it might do, and it’s cool, but… Woah.

  1. I admire people doing things that other people will not and did not think of but, seriously. Some of this things are just a waste of time. I wish I had time to just fart around for a year making this thing using this piece of code or this piece of junk I found in my closet.

    Does anyone reading this post have this kind of time on their hands? If so I have a crap load of stuff I need done, some fun some not.

  2. The only reason I can see making this particular project was for an awesome entry on your resume or for a client. People pay artist to make weird works of art, why should weird or eccentric software be different?

  3. This one is not so useless as I can see, it can comunicate with an real unix server so…

  4. Um yup…. i does what??? Anyway when I type into I i feel like am typing in DOS again, only I can’t break my computer… yay! go ULINFDW or wotever it was called. I also feel like i am in an old fashioned movie with computers, when an actor guy types in a load of rubbish and up comes a picture…usualy of a criminal, how strange! Its cool, but I betchya I could do the same thing in flash but it would only take me a whole of an hour and it would probably do just about the same thing as that does!
