Please note that the content of this book primarily consists of articles available from Wikipedia or other free sources online. Amoeba is an open source microkernel-based distributed operating system developed by Andrew S. Tanenbaum and others at the Vrije Universiteit. The aim of the Amoeba project is to build a timesharing system that makes an entire network of computers appear to the user as a single machine. Development at Vrije Universiteit was stopped: the files in the latest version were last modified on 12 February 2001. Recent development is carried forward by Dr. Stefan Bosse at BSS Lab. Amoeba runs on several platforms, including SPARC, i386, i486, 68030, Sun 3/50 and Sun 3/60. The system uses FLIP as a network protocol.
