Vista On PSP… Sorta… Not Really

Here’s a cool download: An “operating system” that runs entirely as a web page within a simple browser, thus letting you run something similar to Windows XP or Windows Vista on your PSP. A truly, brilliant alternative to hacking the mini-console with homebrew stuff. All you need are web pages the PSP’s browser can support.

The “program” looks pretty slick, with XP, XP Royal Blue and Vista styles, and contains a file viewer, calculator, calendar, web browser (redundant?), periodic table, stopwatch, text editor, and games (Battleships, Blackjack, Box-In, Breakout, 5 Card Stud, Hangman, Guess Country, Checkers, Connect 4, Demolition, Draw Poker, Face, Memory, Mind Reader, Minesweeper, Pegs, Pong!, Reflex Test, 8 Queens, Rock, Paper, Scissors, Squares, Switch Off, Tetris, Tic Tac Toe, Tower of Hanoi, Yahtzee), all running in “windows” in the faux-Windows interface, complete with desktop, task bar and start menu.
