   Sounds like multi-user UNIX-like system, or modern GNU/Linux
   multi-user system.

On a multi-user system you can keep your own files in our home
directory.  You can decide to copy a program you like from one
location to your home directory.

With Webassembly / Javascript (specifically in the form of SaSS) you
are at the mercy of whoever is hosting the program to run it.  Maybe
even depending on that site for storing your data.  The issue is
_intent_ of how these things are to be used -- depriving users of how
they can run their programs.

The suggestion in this thread was to make GNU port to webassembly, and
then be run in a web browser, from someone elses machine.

   In my opinion question is if that all is free software. Not if it runs

That it is free software is a side issue.  Sometimes the issues of
software freedom are not just about the four freedoms.
