Abstract: Suite is an extension of UNIX supporting distributed, persistent, multi-user, and protected objects. We have used it to implement several distributed interactive applications and done some preliminary performance measurements. Our preliminary experience with Suite indicates that our approach towards distributed objects is useful since it results in a system that is a strict extension of the original system and offers better support for building new classes of applications.
