COSMOS is the invention of Chad Z. Hower aka Kudzu. However from the first line of code written it started as a collaboration between Chad Z. Hower aka Kudzu and Matthijs ter Woord.

COSMOS has been rattling around in Chad’s brain since about 1995 with a lot of brain cycles spent on deep designs of the system. It was however at the time CHAOS – Chad Hower’s Advanced Operating System.


Finally in about 2007 Chad convinced Matthijs to join him in another crazy open source adventure and they named it COSMOS as Chad didn’t want the project to be only about him.


Since then COSMOS has grown into a large open source project with many contributors.


Coming soon.
