To accommodate the rapid changes in computing technology and the increasing demands of applications, operating systems must be made flexible and extensible. Although the object-oriented approach makes operating systems customisable, its “black-box” nature makes it hard to achieve such customisability. We analyse some important problems with the object-oriented approach, and suggest using metaobject protocols to solve the problems. We discuss the use of metaobject protocols to construct metaobjects that provide transparent support to application programmers for non-functional requirements such as fault tolerance, and show how this approach is flexible and customisable if necessary
