"The name Fabrice Bellard may not be recognizable to a
lot of people, but the work he carries out as a programmer and
computer scientist is. He is the man behind the LZEXE compression
engine, FFmpeg audio and video converter, the QEMU emulator and
virtualizor, and he also held the World Record for the computation
of PI to 2,700 billion digits in 2009.
"He is a very talented programmer, and his latest project
demonstrates once again just how talented he is. Using the
web browsers, he has managed to create a PC emulator that runs in a
browser. As a demonstration he has posted a link to a version of
the Linux kernel running in such a scenario."
