OOSMOS stands for Object-Oriented State Machine Operating System. It is a new type of operating system where the fundamental contextual unit is the object, not the thread as it is in traditional operating systems.

Because there are no threads, there are no thread stacks, so OOSMOS is ideal for use in memory constrained environments where a traditional thread-based operating system is not a viable option.

Multi threaded and OO kernels actually save resources and provide better responsiveness than round robin scheduling.


You have some data to back that up? While I think it is possible that some multi-threaded and/or OO kernels can be better in those regards; I don't think you can make a blanket statement on the matter.
