The author presents the architecture of a new family of parallel operating systems based on an alternative design approach when compared to multiprogramming, namely, generic construction of parallel virtual machines. This construction is made according to needs of models for parallel programming which shall be supported as subsystems by the parallel operating system kernel. The author presents the PAROS architecture and its generic kernel ParX which has been designed for message passing parallel computers. Several parallel virtual machines are also described, such as for instance a diffusion virtual machine, and a message passing-shared data virtual machine
