Given the rapid advances in network technology, we crave the advent of ultra large-scale, open, self-advancing, and distributed environments. Existing structuring concepts for operating systems are, however, insufficient for developing such environments. We propose the Muse object architecture and demonstrate the Muse operating system, which is intended to support environments like these. Version 0.3 of the Muse operating system is running on Sony NEWS workstations each of which has 25MHz MC68030 CPU and a minimum 4MB of physical memory without external cache. The system is written in the C++ programming language.
