Message Passing & Distributed Entities

I find the combination of the next 2 patterns for software systems extremely elegant:
1) the Message Passing, and
2) the maintenance of Distributed Entities by the former.

They have been em employed in (at least) the following:

  • Erlang Actors
  • Mikrokernels
  • Qnix
  • JNI
  • Java Spaces
  • 3d virtual reality applications (FPS games)
  • [edit 30-Sept-2009]Google-wave.
I think its the later that would become the killer-application of all times!
