'Cosmo' — a C#-Based Operating System

From Slashdot

"A new operating system called Cosmo has been developed, written entirely in C#. It shows the naysayers you can write a full OS kernel without C. So far, you need Visual Studio to compile and run it, as Mono is not supported. However, the source code can be compiled with the Express editions of Visual Studio. The project plans to add VB.NET support soon."

I can hardly believe it's possible. Doesn't C# need the .net stuff that requires Windows?

Common Language Infrastructure (CLI) not to be mistaken with Command Line Interface.

Common Intermediate Language (CIL),
