Voda Operating Systems is one of the most notable Grenesian corporations. The company greatly contributed to Grenesia’s digital revolution, and is especially recognizable for its PC operating system that has become a Grenesians’ predominant chioce.

The corporation, founded in 1988 by Marek Vodetski and Stanislav Kloda under the name Vodetski-Kloda Machine Systems, initially specialized in programming industrial machines. In 1992, the company released its first text-based Voda 1100 operating system, primarly designed for office use, only to be replaced by a fully graphic UI just a year later. In January 1995, the corporation entered foreign markets and the Voda 1400 released in 1996 became a huge success in all neighboring countries, the OS was also sold in @Variota, @Fulgistan, @Greater Serbia. In March 1998, Voda 1500 entered the markets. The newer version, however, turned out to be a commercial flop due to frequent crashes caused by critical system instability problems and resulted in the company’s severe financial losses. The company ditched the failed system and instead continued to provide technical support and constant security updates for Voda 1400 and also aimed to increase its range of features, incorporate 32-bit program support, and improve hardware and software compatibility and security of the quickly aging system. In the year 2000 it was clear that Voda 1400 was slowly becoming terribly outdated and was in dire need of a worthy successor.

Voda Plexi interface from early 2002.

In July 2001 the early phase of development of Voda Plexi came to an end, with initial release in August that year, and its first stable version issued in December. It came down in history as the bestseller of the Voda corporation as it had a user-friendly intuitive interface, the system was incredibly stable, much more secure and way robust than the 1400 and thus is still used by hundreds of thousands of computers. It also provided native programs for viewing and editing documents, photographs, music, and videos, and the 64-bit releases of Plexi OS catered the needs of the emerging market of computer games and advanced specialist software. Although the development of the Plexi OS stopped in 2015 and technical support ended in 2017, the system continues to receive periodic security patches mainly because it continues to be the Grenesia’s number one system used in schools, offices, and ATMs, with many web servers still running Plexi Server 1600. Voda Plexi also became popular with Grenesian military for its proven reliability.

Voda Glass interface.

Voda Glass is a modern 64-bit operating system prioritizing backwards compatibility, end-user privacy, and system protection from malware. The Glass OS comes with the built-in, system integrated antivirus program and the vast on-line plugin and emulator library for Voda allows to use software not dedicated to run on Voda OS, rendering it compatible with any software. However, its release in March 2014 was harsh, mainly because the system was said to be slow and resource-hungry.

Voda Phone UI.

Voda Operating Systems also eneted the mobile market in early 2010 with its dated but reskinned Plex OS for mobile devices. Since the release of Glass OS in 2014, the new system was successfully adapted for smartphones and tablets and Voda Phone soon became a separate branch of software for mobile devices, developed independently.

Currently, Voda Operating Systems also provides a wide range of electronic devices with its software, from ticket machines and cash registers to smart TVs, home systems, and Grenesian-made luxury vehicles, leaving little room for competition on the domestic market.
