Oslo is Microsoft's new Modeling Platform. It is made up of a tool, a language, and a repository. This video introduces you to the Quadrant. Quadrant is the modeling tool for Oslo.
This video walks though the user experience and shows how to work with and edit exiting models, drop workpads onto the workflow surface, add and edit data, and edit existing models (like processes).

So did they adopt the BPMN (Business Process Management Notation) for drawing the processes?
I’ve not heard of BPMN in the past. But I have been out of some of the deeper, more recent Oslo conversations.

Quadrant uses Workflow Foundation?
No, Quadrent has its own UI. I’m not aware of it using workflow under the covers.
The hope is eventually you can build XAML Workflows by using Quadrent though.
Hope this helps.
