Look at unununium project (dead for quite a while), they tried to have a 
python shell as a basic thing for an operating system and had quite a 
lot of nice concepts. Right now obvious approach would be to target some 
virtualised environment instead of hardware itself, so it's not 
something very new. There are questions what abstraction do you provide 
for hard drive, etc. etc.

What pypy has unique here is RPython, which can easily map low level 
details onto high level.

Just few thoughts
