Can you develop an Operating System using JAVA?

JNode and SavaJE are two OS written largely in Java. It is unlikely that you could write an OS in 100% Java, it would require a Java-enabled chip (these exist) that would be able to boot up in Java mode, and know what Java class to start up. I don't think this currently exists. As to Java on the desktop (Intel PCs), then you will require a bootloader (normally written in C) that kicks starts the JVM.
