OS 1 is a product of Urbit, and is a collaboration platform built for groups of people to share messages, links, and notes within the Urbit ecosystem. The platform was released during quarter one of 2020. It is the extension OS 0 from Urbit, and is the predecessor to OS 2 and other future operating systems.

Urbit is a clean-state software stack operating system that runs on any Unix machine with an internet connection. It is a peer-to-peer network that is designed to last indefinitely, and is meant to be a means for building communities. It is comprised of two components, Urbit ID and Urbit OS, both of which are MIT licensed. While Urbit ID is an identity and authentication system, it works directly with Urbit OS to provide a secure and private connection to Urbit, and not through a centralized service.

OS 1 is the first minimal, yet complete release of Urbit. It is a system that operates for cloud computers. The system can be used to publish notes, interact among users and friends, and can be built on top of. The product is primarily geared towards communities that require a new platform to function, communicate, and collaborate. The system is working towards notifications, it operates on a browser and it tooling is required to incorporate distribution modules.
