Abstract:

This thesis proposes the architecture of a personal computer that provides better support than conventional architectures for recently developed concepts of structured programming. The architecture separates implementation and high level language issues. The architecture eliminates the need for an operating system by including, in a language independent manner, the features normally found in operating systems. The architecture allows multiple languages to coexist safely. It is complete the user has no need to leave the world defined by the architecture to solve a problem, including the important case of executing untrusted programs.
