News, tips, partners, and perspectives for the Oracle Solaris operating system

An operating system in Haskell

Just found out about this today, of all places from the OpenSolaris ZFS discussion list. Haskell User's Operating System and Environment. Very neat! I haven't tried it yet but the idea of being able to implement an OS in a pure functional language is pretty cool. Hmn now how cool would it be if this could be done on SPARC with the new UltraSPARC T1 - no I'm not going to do the port, I've got too much other stuff to do. Bet they could do with having DTrace for Haskell :-)
