Long show yesterday so today it’s a short one, it’s Hanselminutes episode 411, Creating a Mac emulator using JavaScript with James Friend.

So, why would you create a Mac emulator running in the browser using JavaScript? Because you can and it’s awesome! Here is one more example using Emscripten to convert C into JavaScript. I listened to a previous show where it was used for a Sass conversion.

The cool part here is not the Mac emulator per say but instead what it means. If we can run this in the browser today, imagine what we can do in a few years. Do you really believe that desktop operative systems will be needed in the near future? I don’t.
