Abstract : The report briefly defines such concepts as: Computer software, programming and operating system functions, programming languages and processors, machine independence, procedurality, generality, interpreters, translators, assemblers, compilers, and generators. It discusses, in relatively non-technical terms, major developments in operating systems, and outlines the kind of interactive programming system that could shortly result from these trends.
