Bored Of Android And iOS, Elon Musk To Launch DogeOS

DogeOS website goes live on April 1.


Tesla CEO Elon Musk is one of the most creative individuals that we’ve come across in the history of humankind. In 2018, when he was stuck in traffic — the next thing he did was build an underground tunnel and started selling hats. After selling 50,000 hats, he eventually got bored of hats and started selling flamethrowers, and he sold 25,000 of them.

At this point, it’s safe to assume that Elon Musk can do anything, right? Right. The world’s richest man is now aiming to develop an open-source, Linux-based operating system called DogeOS. Yes, you heard that right. DogeOS will compete with the likes of Android and iOS.

Interestingly, it’s rumored that a modified version of this OS will also power the gigantic touchscreen displays that we see in Tesla Model S, Model 3, and other Tesla EVs.

How Does DogeOS Look Like?

We don’t know how the OS will look, so; we reached out to the developers Elon hired to develop the OS. Luckily, Elon has permitted them to send the pictures of UI/UX elements of the DogeOS. The OS has a striking resemblance to 11-year old Android Icecream Sandwich.

Here’s your first look at the DogeOS:

As you can see, the OS’s UI is on par with most modern-looking mobile OSes out there. In fact, in some areas, the OS is significantly ahead of its competition. The app icons are inspired by Dogecoin’s Shiba Inu dog and look aesthetically pleasing.

The OS’s Elon Software center will have apps on sale that can only be bought using Dogecoin or Bitcoin. You can also order a Tesla on the store using only Bitcoin.

We at Fossbytes love innovation, and after seeing this open-source masterpiece, we’re pretty sure that the upcoming days for open-source software are going to be bright, just like this April fools day.

Also, did we mention that you can dual-boot DogeOS alongside Windows on your PC? Yes, the OS is very flexible.

Okay, enough about this already. Do let us know your thoughts about DogeOS in the comments section below.
