Abstract : The problems and opportunities involved with designing and using distributed systems are discussed. This is followed by presenting a paradigm for the distributed system design process. The paradigm is then applied to the design of a distributed operating system for SPLICE. The major interface between user and operating system is provided by the dictionary/directory system.
