Not sure, but I think it is a stripped down and highly optimized version of Linux.

Maybe it’s Linux, maybe it's something else. It doesn’t make any difference. ASICs can’t be used like traditional computers. In other words, you can’t install your operating system of choice and other applications on top of it. These machines are designed to do only one task. So, if you plan to buy a Bitcoin ASIC, note that you can’t use it for any other purpose than mining Bitcoin or other cryptos that use the same hashing algorithm.
