I think the idea for Movitz is really cool. What state is it currently in right now?

With all these Virtual Machines on a server (isn't EC2 like that?), wouldn't movitz be a good candidate?

I've dabbled just a bit with it, and love it for experiments, but haven't done anything serious with it.

I wish there was a ARM version for a phone... But it's x86 last time I've looked.

I think it's a fantastic idea.
There was a problem I was having with it though. I bought an old OOOLD laptop with like 8mb of RAM and had movitz on a floppy just to keep something in my car that had a repl. Like old computers would have a BASIC prompt.
Anything entered would need to be shorter than the width of the screen, or weird errors would happen.

Granted, I know it's more of a compiler than a prompt in design... I suppose I could learn more and write a more robust prompt USING Movitz.

I hope someone writes a full, usable kernel/OS with this in the next few years.

I really liked seeing low-level Lisp (I took a quick look at the NE2k driver)!.
