FYI - SueakNOS (Squeak No Operating System)

I have heard from time to time erlang folk talk about erlang booting
off "bare metal".
Just released is a bootable iso which does just this for Squeak
The announcement page, with good details in how they accomplished
Of particular interest is that further OS behavior can be written
with Squeak (and/or its subset language which translates to &
compiles in C). Seems a similar approach may work for an erlang OS.
It would be interesting to hear from erlang VM gurus if some of what
is done to support SqueakNOS is applicable to building an "erlangNOS".
thanks, ke han
