Apfelsine OS
Proprietary operating system based on freeBSD and having a graphical interface using dwm as a window manager.
The operating system can be used on home computers, laptops, tablets, smartphones and smart watches. The operating system supports push notifications, has a modern browser that uses Firefox and chromium components, and the operating system has functions that facilitate interaction with your other Apfelsine ™ devices. For example, ApfelSYNCwhich allows you to have access to files, tabs and other things at the same time on different devices. New connection interface using wifi-direct and NFC technologies ensures security and data transfer speed

While nowhere. It's not exist in this time, but from several month I planning to start do some work

In general, it's not a good idea to promise something in a public forum if there is no indication that you will (and can!) deliver a result. What do you expect others to take home from your post?

Thanks for advice

I don't wish to appear rude, but the OP reads to me like the output of a Markov chain generator fed exclusively on buzzwords.

So it is proprietary and based on FreeBSD? The BSD people are not going to like that very much.
It can be used on everything that has a processor? Rather a big target, you might wish to shoot for something more attainable. Like, one of the platforms mentioned.
So it will use dwm, and you are going to ship it on a smart watch? DWM is almost entirely keyboard controlled. Good luck pressing Alt-Shift-Enter on a Smart Watch.

BSD != GNU. :) Specifically, BSD licenses allow for proprietary use. Long ago, they required credit, but they even dropped that.

FreeBSD still uses the 2-clause "Simplified" license, which requires binary distributions to include the copyright notice in documentation. OpenBSD uses a version of the ISC license which also still has that requirement.

In documentation, right. That's a far cry from the 3-clause BSD license which made Microsoft put BSD credits on their boot screen, long ago! :D (It was some version of WinNT or Win2k with the blue clouds boot screen.) But my point was really to say to nullplan that many open-sourcers don't have the GNU attitude toward commercial software. I've known several good open-source programmers who don't. (I should have just written that.)
