Operating System
An operating system is software, consisting of programs and data, that runs on a computer, managing computer hardware resources, and providing common services for efficient execution of various apps. Operating systems are found on almost any device that contains a computer—from cellular phones and video game consoles to supercomputers and web servers – and tablets like ADAM.

• ADAM ships with the Android OS, with a custom Eden user interface on top. Notion Ink initially announced the capability of running Android, Chrome OS and Ubuntu on ADAM.
