Round Focus is a theory to visually demonstrate a problem of ambiguous gestures, multitasking, and notifications that current generation of operating systems have. Subhajeet will address user understanding and security monitoring structures in FreeBSD, OpenBSD, with NetBSD (also Windows NT and Mac OS X’s Darwin). His new operating system has included both monolithic and microkernel, as a hybrid kernel. In particular, on system file access, legacy boot and secure boot. He notices that based on the Linux kernel, Android still has some noticeable security issues, including closed source vs open source. Currently it is not efficient enough for the user to “get the job done” anymore. Users do not want their desktops to be bombarded with notifications and unnecessary information. One of the elements of the new operating system includes Timed Notification System, which lets the user interact with the notification for a certain amount of time depending on what the user is working on.
Subhajeet Mukherjee is a 21 year old programmer, and an author. He is currently a student of Computer Science at Foothill College (A.S). He previously completed his freshman year at South Dakota State University. He also has course certification on Machine Intelligence from Stanford University. He has a patent pending in both U.S. and India regarding the method and underlying system of this Operating System. In 2012, he started a debate at TED’s website to discuss about the future of operating systems in Calcutta. In 2016, he received a letter of commitment from Brookings Economic Development Corporation, South Dakota regarding his system. Last year, he received a letter from the Former President of the United States, Barack Obama as he wished him good luck. He is the author of “Not in a Smarter Us” and “Love Without Sensuality”. Both books talk about legacy operating systems and the limitation in the current operating systems.
