Has anyone seen/read about this yet?

an Open Source C# based operating system (not written by Microsoft, but rather a former employee of Microsoft) that can run on things like the Wii, OLPC (One Laptop Per Child) and iPhone?!? This sounds really interesting...

Cosmos - C# Open Source Managed Operating System

pretty creative.
