Abstract : The design of the Isaac operating system comes from several years of reflexion and implementation on the need for flexibility and dynamism in future operating systems. Our goals progressively lead us towards the object-oriented concepts. Prototype-based languages appeared the most elegant manner to materialize our vision of operating system. These, coupled with a powerful language allowing changing inheritance dynamically, made it possible to create the innovating Isaac OS (
