The Cogent Research XTM is a desktop parallel computer based on the INMOS T800 transputer. Designed to expand from two to several hundred processors, the XTM provides a transparent distributed computing environment both within a single workstation and among a collection of workstations. Using Linda tuple spaces as the basis for interprocess communication and synchronization, a Unix-compatible, server-based OS was constructed. A graphic user interface is provided by an interactive PostScript window server called PIX . All processors see the same set of system services, and within protection limits, programs capable of using many processors can spread out over a network of workstations and resource servers, acquiring the services of unused processors.<>
