I was considering porting the Ruby 1.9 VM to bare metal (something
similar to Cleese - http://code.google.com/p/cleese/). I was wondering
if someone is already working on this. The end goal is to have a Ruby
OS, with everything running on the VM. I have yet to analyze the
complete changes needed.

My original idea was for such a (Ruby) OS to be coupled with a versioned
file-system to have a completely rollback-able OS where the whole
userland and parts of the system land are in pure Ruby, with patches
being .diff files :-) .

I have a discussion running on the OSDev forums regarding this (Link:
http://forum.osdev.org/viewtopic.php?f=15&t=20220)

So is there such a project already?

TLDR: Is someone working on porting the Ruby 1.9.x VM to bare metal?
