Abstract : The progress achieved of the Saguaro distributed operating system project is presented. The major accomplishments include design of the full system, prototype implementations of major system components on top of UNIX, and the implementation of portions of the system using the distributed programming language SR. Substantial work was also performed on related research, including SR, the MLP system for constructing distributed mixed-language programs, the Psync interprocess communication mechanism, the x configurable operating system kernel, and the development of language mechanisms for performing failure handling in distributed programming languages.
