SuperNova consists of two parts the "kernel" and the "interface". The kernel part of SuperNova is a full-fledged operating system. The SuperNova Kernel takes full advantage of the Z80 CPU found in the TI-85. SuperNova allows you to run assembly programs which are faster and more efficient than the regular TI programs. These assembly programs are stored as strings on the calculator. The SuperNova Interface is a shell. This just makes it easier for you to run your programs. Assembly programs allow direct access to hardware which results in faster and smaller programs.

The Kernel is the "brains" of SuperNova and the Interface is just what you see. The Kernel is NOT interchangeable, but the Interface is. SuperNova is free.
