Kent Applicative Operating System
(KAOS) A functional operating system
concept using dynamic process creation and inter-process
communication. KAOS was described in 1989 by Dr. John Cupitt
in his PhD thesis at the University of Kent. It was based on
earlier work by Will R. Stoye.
KAOS allowed dynamic creation of "functional processes" -
functions that transform an input stream to an output
stream. Process scheduling is based on evaluation on demand.
Inter-process communication is by message passing based on
Stoye's sorting office concept.
