Essence® is not an Operating System (OS). It is an adaptive computing extension (ACE). While it is similar to a Unikernel, its runtime regeneration of code to maximize speed or space or wattage, and its per-info-unit security allows Essence® to achieve a tighter coupling of understanding and control over your computing experience. Essence® can run alongside a host OS for compatibility or be installed exclusively as an appliance.
Wantware is a process of Essence® answering the many user-expressed tasks with custom, runtime software to maximize its hardware/resources. Wantware uses an Agent to transform a Skill (user expressed ‘want’) into a composition of Powers (permutations of legacy-code or runtime code) and schedules when it runs, what it can learn or change, and how it all happens.
