Early Scope

Nano is a portable OS and for the most part, any portable app has the potential to work with it. The default suite of built-in applications is not refined yet but already “just works”. Like the old-skool computers – your default Operating system has a suite of preferable apps.
But since it’s based on Windows PE and built up from scratch, we can build Windows PE apps, that are basically just a computer that boots into that one application and literally does nothing else. If it’s necessary to run the program , it’s in there but if it’s not – we strip it away.
Imagine for example that any computer can become any specific application. Say a video editing console, dj booth or an audio workstation are simply a boot-menu item. Your DJ stick turns any computer into your traktor setup, your tunes – without any messing around.
Various builds can be made from different versions of Windows, however the current ideal source version is Windows 10 10586.162. This has shown to be a good basis and everything is working, including the TOR browser. Nano Pro uses the x64 version of 10586.162.
Currently we’re testing its performance and features such as PXE-boot and VM editions and everything is working as expected. Nano differs from standard Windows in a number of ways but if your needs are met then the advantages of using it are game-changing.
One of our goals is to create a drop-in business package that is centrally managed by one console and OS-related errors would be practically eliminated. Preconfigured-systems with an “idiot-proof” approach should be a market we can innovate in.
Diskless devices work without any preset data, but contains chrome and other default applications that can run entirely in ram or store the profile persistently on the storage device. This could be a network drive, usb stick, SSD.
In august 2017 full VMware compatibility was added, along with a mapped network-drive that acts as the C drive, nano save/restore working. This means a thin client or VM can start from PXE, have a unique network folder on the server and store everything on the server.
Companies can assign custom builds of nano to each employee with their own shared folder on the server. Profiles can be applied to each user, so their entire OS is focused on their task only. No complex Windows management, everything automated out of one machine.
Our Enterprise hardware can be based on this process, having a drydock server and multiple hardware thin clients. Each client is activated by a custom OS booted from the user’s device using local or network storage depending on the situation.
These services need to be developed but I know what is needed and I believe we can make good deals with organisations we ally with. Our overall goal is to make computing better and easier, packaging up some software and solutions, opening up a new area of exploration.
