Jslinux is more than it seems. It's an entire x86 execution engine in

the emacs written in C and compiled with tcc, which he also wrote.  Both
of them are LGPL.  It's quite cute and usably fast and you might be

When you say "run Linux", I presume you really mean running GNU/Linux.
Linux by itself is not usable for a human user (see
http://www.gnu.org/gnu/linux-and-gnu.html).  Please call it GNU/Linux

Aside from that, a more substantial question is, is it a good idea to
run GNU/Linux in a browser this way?  The crucial question is whether
you can run _your own copy_ of it.
