Introduction

Kueea System is a distributed, peer-to-peer operating system. Its main purpose is gathering and preservation of knowledge about the worlds around us, whether these are real or fictional. It provides tools to make computations on that knowledge, so that further knowledge may be inferred from what is already known, tools for creation and interaction with various kinds of resources and enables its users to stay connected to each other via automanaged networks.

The first ideas leading to the establishment of the project emerged around the year 2011, when the project was just another Web site. The project evolved into an operating system around the year 2015. The goal was to avoid duplication of information by connecting databases. As research progressed, it became clear that a database alone is useless. There needs to be a system of applications that use and manage the data. Database usefulness needs to be proven by using it for something perceivable like an audio or video player (that reads streams from the database). Kueea System consists of both the applications and the database, which is where all of system and user resources are being kept.

Specifications of all system components are publicly available as technical documents describing expected behaviour of network nodes. The nodes that implement the technology compose the system. One does not "install" the system on a machine. Rather, one prepares and adds one’s machine to the system. It then becomes a terminal through which one can access the system.

In short, the system is an intangible, abstract concept. The behaviour of a node as seen from outside is what matters. For example, if a node is asked to add 2 and 3, the node is expected to answer 5 - how did it arrive at this answer (implementation) is out of scope.
