However Tooloop tries to take the aproach one step further. It also comes with a set of neat management utilities that will make your life much easier.
Tooloop OS comes pre-installed on machines sold by our partners. If you’ve built a machine yourself, please follow the link.
Tooloop OS boots into your running application in seconds and all the power of your machine is used to display your application and for nothing else.
There's certain management tasks we repeatedly have to do with our live systems. Managing assets or configuring machines and software. Tooloop OS provides some features so you can always reach out to your machines over the network.
The project is in alpha phase.
It is not feature complete and there might be bugs and hickups. The manual and developer docs aren’t complete and might be wrong or out of date.
