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.

There are multithreaded OS's that take up just a few K of memory and run on the smallest processors, like FreeRTOS, Micrium and others.


Micrium is a vendor, not an OS. The RTOS they make is uC/OS.
