I’ve been playing around with status for an year. I pinged them on their slack an year ago When the idea of Clarity got born but they said they want to do an app. Their initial idea was a custom Android ROM that supports dapps but they changed their mind.

That's really interesting. A lot of their project seems to be written in Nim, which I never heard of until today 🤔. It looks like it transpiles into C, C++ or Js which is really cool.

Hi guys! Had an idea I wanted to share: I wonder if there is a way to create a "light" OS that is essentially a JS engine (thinking a mobile version of Chrome OS essentially). I still need to learn more about the "module" idea but for developers for the platform a javascript OS can even allow the use of react-native: https://github.com/necolas/react-native-web. Also, if status transpiles to JS this seems like it could integrate! We might accomplish this by optimizing chromium on some lightweight mobile OS

Welcome Noah! I've been using Chrome OS for the past 4 months and actually made it my primary machine. I can't say if it's the right choice, I leave this to you.

Hey Noah, you should join our discussion in the OS Development channel! https://spectrum.chat/thread/e3dbeebd-75ee-492a-abf2-cc83c98d85a3
