Cosmos is an evolving, open source, .NET-based operating system development tool. The acronym stands for "C# Open Source Managed Operating System."

With Cosmos, developers can create and debug their own custom operating systems using Visual Studio .NET, Microsoft's visual programming environment for creating Web services based on use of the Extensible Markup Language (XML).
