I have a friend who teaches Common Lisp programming at Columbia
University and he wrote a virtual Operating System in Lisp for
his courses. These pseudo OS environments are useful for learning
and allowing 'safe' modification of the OS without getting into
the murky deails of C but ultimately they all need a real OS
underneath to talk to the hardware.
