OpenAMP Allows OS Management
In the beginning was the operating system (OS). And the OS begat processes and the processes begat threads, and all thrived under this benevolent hierarchy. For a thread, there was nothing outside the domain of the process. And for a process, there was nothing outside the domain of the OS. Protected within the bosom of their parents, these child entities had no need to interact with other children from outside this universe. Lack of a broader view was balanced by protection from possible predations.
And so life continued, from the top down. Such an approach molded the evolution of object orientation. With some exceptions (like being able to refer to a parent), an object can see only its properties and methods, along with anything downstream of them.
