Porting AIX onto the Student Electronic Notebook

Ioannidis, John; Maguire, Gerald Q.; Ben-Shaul, Israel Z.; Levedopoulos, Marios; Liu, Micky

We describe the Student Electronic Notebook and the process of porting IBM‘s AIX 1.1 to run on it. We believe that portable workstation-class machines connected by wireless networks and dependent on a computational and informational infrastructure raise a number of important issues in operating systems and distributed computation (e.g., the partitioning of tasks between workstations and infrastructure), and therefore the development of such machines and their software is important. We conclude by summarizing our activities, itemizing the lessons we learned and identifying the key criteria for the design of the successor machines.
