  • This paper describes experiences gained during the design, implementation and use of the CMU Accent Network Operating System, its. predecessor, the University of Rochester RIG system and its successor CMU’s Mach multiprocessor operating system. It outlines the major design decisions on which the Accent kernel was based, how those decisions evolved from the RIG experiences and how?hey had to be modified to properly handle general purpose multiprocessors in Mach. Also discussed are some of the… CONTINUE READING
