    well like in the movie tron yes but available to the general public no because it's mainly only available to Linux devs cause barely not much people actually work on the other ranges of the distribution of the o.s like a tron o.s but if you want you can just change the o.s code if you know know code that way you have a tron o.s

    I doubt it. If you wanted something like that you'd have to make it yourself. even if it was available, then it probably wouldn't work on every system. What I'm trying to say is that if it did exist, someone made it themselves specifically for their hardware. maybe you could read up on how to use linux from scratch and build your own distro. There is a very steep learning curve, but something like that would feel very rewarding. Trust me, I'd love to have J.A.R.V.I.S. as my operating system, but unless I download a cheap, scratch the surface mockup or make it myself, it's not gonna happen.

    It seems that the interface from the movie is a combination of an OS that uses Unix commands and Emacs Eshell. IMO, such a setup isn't remotely usable compared to a Windows system, but it's visually stunning.

    Here's an example of an OS that used Unix commands:
