Submission + - JavaScript-Based OpenRISC Emulator Can Run Linux, GCC, Wayland (phoronix.com)

An anonymous reader writes: The jor1k is an interesting open-source toy emulator project to emulate a 32-bit OpenRISC OR1000 processor, 63MB of RAM, ocfb frame-buffer, and ATA-hard drive.... All in JavaScript. Though JavaScript based, there's asm.js optimizations and the performance seems to be quite decent in modern web-browsers. The jor1k OpenRISC emulator can do a lot even handle running the Linux kernel, GCC compiler, ScummVM Monkey Island, and the Wayland/Weston Compositor all from within the web-browser
