In this talk I will present a selection of historical multiprocessor and distributed operating systems from the 1970s through to the last decade and examine characteristics of those systems that remain relevant for distributed systems design today. At first glance the historical systems seem quite different to the architectures and software designs that we currently favor, but I hope to show that although the trade-offs have changed as technology has evolved, many of the issues stay the same.
