Hey, You Got Your Language In My Operating System!
Jon Howell, Mark Montague
Dartmouth PCS-TR98-340

Abstract: Several projects in the operating systems research community suggest a trend of convergence among features once divided between operating systems and languages. We describe how partial evaluation and transformational programming systems apply to this trend by providing a general framework for application support, from compilation to run-time services. We contend that the community will no longer think of implementing a static collection of services and calling it an operating system; instead, this general framework will allow applications to be flexibly configured, and the ``operating system'' will simply be the application support that is supplied at run-time.
