TUNES -- TUNES is a Useful, Nevertheless Expedient, System


English (USA)

To sum up the main features in technical terms, Tunes is a project to
replace existing Operating Systems, Languages, and User Interfaces by
a completely rethought Computing System, based on a fully reflective
architecture with standard support for unification of system
abstractions, security based on formal proofs from explicit negociated
axioms, higher-order functions, self-extensible syntax, fine-grained
composition, distributed networking, persistent storage,
fault-tolerant computation, version-aware identification,
decentralized (no-kernel) communication, dynamic code regeneration,
high-level models of encapsulation, hardware-independent exchange of
code, migratable actors, yet (eventually) a highly-performant set of
dynamic compilation tools (phew).
