In this short paper, it is argued that the notion of process, augmented with transactional properties, can be a very powerful tool for designing and developing distributed applications over clusters of PCs and workstations. This is done by first defining the type of distributed applications being targeted, showing how the notion of process supports such applications, and finally pointing out the role transaction must play to complement the notion of process. The paper concludes with an overview of how these systems may evolve.
