What, if anything, prevents someone from porting OpenJDK to run on top
of Google´s Chrome OS? Has that project been started yet?

The alleged impending release of a Chrome-OS powered netbook is
something that should put everyone interested in Java´s future to work
on such port.

In other words, I´d like to run Azureus/Vuze, jDownloader, Java Image
Editor, muCommander (NC clone), eKit (enhanced, cross-platform wordpad
clone), jEdit (programmer´s editor), Mindterm (SSH client), on Chrome
OS just as I run those on Wndows and Linux...

Thoughts? Comments? expletives? ;-)
