Research into kernels and operating systems

In order for businesses to enforce copyrights on digital media a higher degree of control over the computers used by individuals is required. This need has led to a war on general computation in which ever more elaborate means of restriction and control are increasingly baked directly into the hardware of consumer PCs and devices.

Operating systems themselves have become stale as they have struggled under the weight of backwards compatability with increasingly irrelevant hardware and software paradigms. At present two operating system designs remain dominant: UNIX (Linux/macOS) and Windows. However, combined these explore a low degree of the space of possible operating systems for modern hardware.

This page is a stub for ideas about building new operating systems that take unexplored branches away from the two dominant paradigms.
