A description is given of PLURIX, a Unix-like operating system designed to control PEGASUS-32X, a symmetric multiprocessor supermicro based on several Motorola 68020 microprocessor. The differences and similarities between PLURIX and Unix are examined. The multiprocessing capabilities of PLURIX in the PEGASUS-32X environment are discussed, covering the hardware environment, multiprocessing objectives, mutual exclusion primitives, and event primitives
