Why Batko OS?

In a conversation I recently had I realised I see everything as a problem.

Not in a negative way. In a constructive way.

Everything that I experience my mind instantly breaks into its components, analyses, comes up with a structure and a solution.

I see the World as a Problem.

The Problem becomes a System.

The System offers various Solutions.

Welcome to the Batko Operating System (OS) << a, hopefully, new insight into how to see the World as a System to reduce your cognitive load and come to better outcomes.
