This paper takes the position that the problems of inventing new operating system designs are to a large extent dwarfed by those of finding satisfactory means of evolving to a situation in which full advantage can be taken of these new system designs. It then goes on to analyze briefly the problems that already exist as a result of past operating system developments, and how new system developments could usefully be influenced by a concern for the problems of evolvability that they in turn will inevitably cause.
