Intel® Joule™ Compute Module comes with Ostro. Ostro is an open-source operating system based on Linux. It is designed specifically for the Internet of Things (IoT), and includes security features commonly required by IoT applications. Developers who create products using Ostro can avoid force-fitting a desktop Linux OS into an IoT device, or creating their own OS. Ostro’s application framework supports multiple programming languages and is relatively easy for existing Linux users to adopt. Ostro comes pre-installed on the Intel® Joule™ compute module.
