Abstract- A Personal Distributed Environment (PDE) is
the global set of inter-networked communication enabled
devices that a user possesses, and replaces the single terminal
of the traditional personal communication model. The PDE
requires a device to host the local Device Management Entity,
which coordinates the operation of these devices. The selection
of this device should occur without any user interaction, and
should consider the performance capabilities of the various
devices. This paper presents an algorithm that selects a leader
on the basis of performance capabilities, and is able to change
the order of importance of the capabilities according to
current circumstances.
