Good initial concept, which I agree with. its the implementation I disagree with. Take a look at http://portals.omg.org/dds It enables design of highly scalable, distributed, open architecture, real-time processing systems. While I agree it time for McNealy's vision to be applied to embedded systems, the implementation required to meet embedded real-time requirements is fundamentally different to the client-server architecture successfully used in Enterprise. DDS has been deployed successfully in literally hundreds of embedded, real-time distributed systems. Its peer to peer, publish/subscribe, with real-time tuneable Quality of Service parameters. And exactly as you suggest it focuses on the data, de-coupling the real-time distributed systems requirements from the underlying hardware architecture. Its worth a good look. It addresses all the issues you raise above, and answers questions you have not considered yet.

Of all the exhibits in the Pre-Apocalypse Era Museum, Breek was always in awe of the unearthed details and true-to-scale reproduction of a technological creation space that the long gone humans had once inhabited.
