Operating Systems: A Systematic View
The fifth edition of Operating Systems: A Systematic View offers a practical and applied introduction to operating system concepts, aimed at people interested in using (rather than designing) computers, operating systems, and networks. Instead of focusing on OS theory, the authors take a "systematic view" of the subject, where they provide insight into what is going on beneath the surface. The Intent is to show why operating systems are important to users and what, at a functional level, they do.
Readers are guided through some of today's most widely used operating systems, including Linux, UNIX, and Windows 2000. Also included is coverage of several modern topics and technologies, with chapters on the Windows interface, Intel Pentium architecture, and Windows internals, as well as a section on network operating systems with chapters on client/server networks, Windows 2000, Novell, and the Internet.
