This paper surveys projects in distributed languages and systems at the University of Arizona, and offers observations based on the experience gained during their design, implementation, and use. The relevant projects are the SR distributed programming language, the Saguaro distributed operating system, the MLP system for constructing distributed mixed-language programs, the object-based distributed programming language Emerald, and the Psync interprocess communication mechanism. The observations address the experimentation process itself as well as the design of distributed software.
