5.0 out of 5 stars Very good introduction to operating systems, 22 Oct. 2009
By 
This review is from: Operating System Concepts (Hardcover)
This book is a very good introduction to the world of operating systems. I didn't attend an operating system class at university, and I wanted to catch up with the basic ideas of how an operating system works. This books covers all topics about the internal workings of a modern operating systems, i.e. CPU scheduling, memory paging, I/O management, protection and security, real-time operating systems, and much more. Each topic is thoroughly described in a chapter of about 50 pages; a summary and a description of the most important references is also provided at the end of each chapter. The book is very readable and succseeds in conveying to the reader the feeling of how complex and sophisticated operating systems have become over the years thanks to faster CPUs and hardware peripherals. This is a very good starting point for everyone interested in how an operating system works.
