    Phoronix: OpenRISC Emulator In JavaScript Can Run Wayland

    An interesting open-source project pointed out to Phoronix this week was an OpenRISC emulator that's written in JavaScript. Making things more interesting is that it can now even run Wayland and a Linux image with keyboard support while being able to use JavaScript and other common open-source programs from this JavaScript-based emulator that runs in modern browsers...

    And there is another one: http://opencores.org/or1k/Or1ksim

    In this case, it's only useful to let people use an OpenRISC system in their browser, e.g. when they don't have their OpenRISC development environment around

    Is this a vanity project or is it useful in some way that I missed?

    A webgl backend?

    • Intel i486DX2/66: 54 MIPS

    • ARM 7500FE (Acorn RISC OS Network Computer), ARM3.5running at 40 MHz: 35.9 MIPS
    • ARM11 (Nokia N97, iPhone), at 412 MHz: 515 MIPS
    • ARM Cortex M0 (the slowest modern processor available, it consumes about 0.67 miliwatts running at full power), 50 MHz: 45 MIPS.
    Poorly... but it does run. It seems to lock up after interacting with it a bit though. I imagine wayland would run acceptably with some sort of acceleration. In this cases none of the drawing is accelerated.

    Just for reference ...

    About 40-80 mips on my i7 netbook. Its pretty impressive I did have to make sure I had power management mostly disabled cause it throttles down if I don't.
