atomeOS

He is the creator and principal developer of atomeOS. The first version of atomeOS was publicly released on June 29, 2020 and was named atomeOS 1.0 LTS (Bionic Beaver).[3]

It is claimed that atomeOS is less power-hungry and requires only half a gigabyte of memory and a 6 GB hard drive, and it works with any computer processor that's 64-bit. It is marketed as an eco-friendly operating system that helps to reduce the carbon footprint by prolonging battery life.

It is distributed for free under his non-profit named Swattle.

MergeURL

He is the co-founder of a free-to-use URL shortening and merging service. It is claimed that its unique server-side architecture makes the service secure and its algorithm also prevents spam.[4]

Swattle

He is the founder of this non-profit that distributes free software including atomeOS. It operates by donations from the users and its income value is unknown. He believes open-source is a rightful way of building software. This turned most of Swattle's projects open-sourced while the codebase of atomeOS codebase still remains proprietary.

  • World rank of 4,899 in World Memory Statistics as of December 2020.[6]
