Linux PC Emulator in Javascript

As a programmer, I've always said that (almost) everything is doable in any computer language - although there are computer languages better suited to each and every problem.

However, there's no denying javascript has come a long way since it's first inception. And if any more examples are needed to prove its worth, how about this Linux PC emulator in javascript!

Yep, albeit it's a simple computer comparable to a plain 486 CPU, we're talking about a PC emulator done entirely in Javascript - which is, at the very least, awesome!

It was created by Fabrice Bellard, creator of QEMU and FFmpeg, and also winner of several IOCCC competitions).
