OnePlus releases their own operating system, OxygenOS After a year of running the popular Cyanogen operating system, Chinese smartphone startup OnePlus had a falling out with the company and announced they would be creating their own operating system based on Android.
That operating system - OxygenOS - is now available for OnePlus One owners who are willing to take the plunge.

OxygenOS is close to stock Android 5.0 Lollipop, and the company says they went 'back to basics' while also "placing things like performance and battery life over gimmicks and bloated features."

In addition to the normal stock Android, you will also get gesture shortcuts that can be inputted even when the screen is off, a better file explorer, and some 'advanced options' that could be found in Cyanogen builds.

Eh.....looks boring but then again, Android releases are inherently boring stock. Android just sucks a big fat lollipop anyway.

None-the-less, this is a fresh idea on ridding the cellular devices of unwanted and unneeded software (bloatware).

I see this as further evidence of lousy (read: "nonexistent") response by Cyanogen to customer complaints about their releases. Check their responses on their forum to user questions and complaints sometime =p .
