Abstract Mxec is a sophisticated computing environment (executive system) which extends and magnifies users' interactions with a computer. Principally, Mxec provides for parallel processing and also assumes many of the mundane, clerical tasks with which users of most systems find themselves burdened. Some of the characteristics of the Mxec system are given, and its motivation and implementation are discussed.
