Do os's that run like a application exist?

| I've been trying to find a program or application that's basically a light os that you can just run of the desktop. Im not talking about dual boot or a VM, just a runable os like thing.

| lol

| I mean, there is this: https://store.steampowered.com/app/844590/Hypnospace_Outlaw/

| >>604678 os sits below desktop, and without a VM you're still going to be limited to the programs of the os you're using, because you can't run an os in an os without a VM

That said, some sandbox software has viral desktops to isolate things more, think rehips has one but it's totally not a sandbox

You have to clarify what you mean if you write "OS". Do you just mean a graphical Desktop UI or do you mean a full operating System with a kernel, drivers, etc?
Depending on your definition of an OS you may already run an OS on top of another: Before you boot your actual known winDOS or UNIX OS boots up there was a BIOS or (U)EFI loaded, which already can be seen as some kind of OS itself.

| It's called an emulator I believe. Maybe there's even a more generic term.

| I'm not sure what you mean but Windows 10 has Linux subsystems in the app store for free.

Obvious not a full os, just a desktop like gui in an application. Like one made not by C but rather python or java ect

She is trying to seduce us and get into our underwear and have us cum a lot. I know..because I've been there, I've seen those words fly out of many peoples mouth, and the end result always ends up with a lot of sex.

| >>604766 that's correct, but in their original implementation it acted basically as a layer that converted Linux calls to something that would work on Windows, think reverse wine

I believe they just shoved a copy of the Linux kernel into windows 10 now though
