martymart has asked for the wisdom of the Perl Monks concerning the following question:

Fellow Monks,

I was trying to find some windows specific perl information, and after googling found a link to this perlos webpage. This was back in 2001, the webpage doesn't say if it got completed or not. It looks like this guy was trying to write an operating system with perl. I found the whole idea fascinating and intriguing... he also links to some older projects that tried to do the same thing (one called Perlix - what a great name!!) Have any monks heard of similar projects that are currently underway, or have links to the same. Plus I'd like to know if my learned brother monks believe that perl could be actually used to make a viable operating system?
