AMOEBA is a research project to build a truedistributed operating system using the object model. Under the COST11-ter MANDIS project thiswork was extended to cover wide-area networks. Besides describing the system, this paper discussesthe successive versions in the implementation of its model, and why the changes were made. Itspurpose is to prevent ourselves and others from making the same mistakes again, and toillustrate how a distributed operating system grows in sophistication and size.
