He dubbed this new system Lambda MOO, after one of his names on the system and, according to Curtis, "because it's a key word in some of the other non-mud research that I do." The new system was announced as open for public access on Use Net (a world-wide bulletin board system) in February 1991 (Curtis, personal communication).MOO was originally developed as a MUD server in the same general style (sharing much of the command syntax and community conventions) as Tiny MUD.Most of these MOOs hosted online classes or other early versions of distance education. Every MOO stores the content and state of all its objects within a persistent object database, which keeps objects from being lost by a reset of the MOO server software or the computer hosting it.New MOOs have to choose a starting database from which to set their MOO up, or they can use a minimal one which contains only the necessary objects to start a MOO.
Their most common use, however, is as multi-participant, low-bandwidth virtual realities.One of the most distinguishing features of a MOO is that its users can perform object-oriented programming within the server, ultimately expanding and changing how the server behaves to everyone.Examples of such changes include authoring new rooms and objects, creating new generic objects for others to use, and changing the way the MOO interface operates.The programming language used for extension is the MOO programming language, and many MOOs feature convenient libraries of verbs that can be used by programmers in their coding known as Utilities.The MOO programming language is a domain-specific programming language.
