User interface

Other operating systems are designed to run on extremely complex hardware environments, but Dawn operating system is designed for the SUBLEQ architecture, which have no traditional instruction set. This allows a Dawn compatible processor and computer to be designed from a millionth costs than a traditional CPU.

Dawn operating system is a traditional, classical, content creational operating system with multi-windowing, multi-process, and multi-thread support. While other mainstream operating systems are content consuming operating systems designed only for communication and content consume, Dawn operating system was designed to supply a computing platform, where the user have full control over the hardware. Dawn requires no connection with foreign servers to operate: there are no thousands of mystic packages or strange updates to download to use Dawn. Dawn operating system has everything to achieve something no other operating system from this era can supply for you: computing. Dawn offers a mature traditional user interface and friendly appearance to help you while you work, learn, do scientifical simulations, write and run your own programs, or play. Everything is fun and happiness under Dawn, which is a love-child of a game console and office software rendering environment, with a minimalist stable API and large program-set. Dawn has no bloatware - its a modern operating system with modern graphics user interfaces and conventions, meanwhile it is supplying the features of the heavyweight stand-alone content creational traditional operating systems of the 80s and 90s.
