video presentation it reminds me of Xp shere thingy and the audience is a little over hyping I thought, but it's nice to see a new approace to an OS using Java in a windows enviroment.

Reminds me of MacOS X.

What's the OS called? I'm somewhat skeptical that it's really a new OS.

Well there is another Java OS called JNode around, but this can't possibly be JNode, since JNode is still very very far from that stage.

It's been posted before... A good while ago at that. Unable to trace that post though.

Just did a quick Google search on it, and found the official project page. While it is mainly written in Java, it still requires OpenGL, which of course, isn't written in Java :p Would have been really impressed if they wrote it in Java from the ground up and had the performance they showed in the video.

I downloaded it to try it out, and recommend that nobody waste their time on it unless they have an abundance of time :p Most of the stuff doesn't work yet and it is nowhere near the usability seen in that video.
