Operating System U strives for consistency and control by putting the power back into the user's hands. This amazing new operating system allows the user to be fully in control of how their computer functions while no longer having to settle for updates that interfere with the current functions that you are accustomed to.
Inspired by Microsoft's Windows 7 to Windows 8 upgrade, founder Andrew Bernstein decided to create an operating system that only updates aspects that you want to update, and keeps functions that you love the way they are. He followed the motto, “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it.” Andrew and his team thought that the idea of being forced to upgrade the entire OS was a broken system, so they came out with OS U, a program they believe changes computing for the better.
Andrew Bernstein is a 17 year old high school student from Short Hills, NJ who suffers from ADHD and who decided to offer a solution to the challenge of constant change that some operating systems offer. Operating System U is free. There’s no hidden fees or blocked features, and there’s no trial period. Whether you are utilizing their laptop (Ubook Go) with OS U preinstalled, or downloading it onto your existing computer, the program is free, the (optional) upgrades are free, and the necessary bug fixes are, of course, free. You get the whole package with no cost to you whatsoever.
The campaign’s $50,000 fundraising goal will allow Andrew Bernstein to finish development of Operating System U and to mass produce their Ubook Go laptop and USBs. A highlighted perk includes an early bird special for backers who pledge $185 or more to get a Ubook Go! A Ubook Go is a laptop with OS U preinstalled!
The Kickstarter campaign for Operating System U runs until 30 days after August 22, 2014 and can be found at https://www.kickstarter.com/

About Andrew Bernstein
Andrew Bernstein, is a 17-year-old high-school student from Short Hills, NJ and has ADHD. As a result of his resistance to certain change and the ever changing environment of operating systems, he set out to create Operating System U. It's called Operating System U because it's the user's OS. With OS U, the goal is to strive to create a consistent and user-friendly OS. Andrew wanted to put the power back into the hands of the user. It is by this that he pledges to never introduce a feature and force it onto the user. It is the user's desktop, thus it is the user's choice. Consistency and Control. User-oriented computing at its best.
