A Text-Oriented Operating System
The Text OS is an operating system build upon Universal Text. The kernel has a Text Engine that ties all system services, data and programs together. A local Text Repository replaces the conventional file systems. There are two editions of the Text OS according to its main function: workstation and server. The Text OS Workstation Edition is a highly productive environment for text-intensive work such as software development, engineering and scholar research. Its user interface is a graphical shell that is a generalization of the Text Workbench. The Text OS Server Edition provides a Text Server.

The Text OS offers no brand new technology to a user that is already familiar with the text engine, the text server and the text workbench, but it brings their power one step beyond because these services are consistently shared by all applications and their data. Everything is text, meaning: besides each part having a particular look and feel, any part can be adressed by name or through a selector, its configuration described and modified with a script, and rendered and manipulated under multiple views.
