Discusses the role of multiple inheritance in the OBJIX microkernel design. Among the benefits of this approach, there is the elimination of forwarding calls and a fairly clear and elegant class structure being easy to understand and modify. As the relations among the instances of joint classes tend to be trivial, the class inheritance diagrams are almost sufficient to understand the system's structure and implementation concepts. Moreover, multiple inheritance allows for defining various different interfaces to the same kernel data structures (joint classes)
