Additional Physical Format: Online version: McKeag, R.M. Studies in operating systems. London ; New York: Academic Press, (OCoLC) Online version. This book is written by the guy who appeared as an expert witness for MS in the anti-trust proceedings. When asked by a government prosecutor if he knew of any operating systems (other than MS brand OS's) that would cease functioning if you removed the browser component (as 3/5(5). I recommend reading two books: one general text (that is, a book on concepts and theory) and one implementation text (that is, a book about a specific OS). For the general text, I recommend Operating System Concepts () by Silberschatz, Galvin. This book presents advanced software techniques, espically focusing on operating systems. It present material that will enable the reader to design, use, and analyze not only current operating systems but future ones as well. The presentation covers a spectrum ranging from specific implementation details to relevant theoretical results. The book is written as a text, with relevant problems.

Organized as a course in operating systems and advanced software engineering, with case studies, relevant theories, and practical and theoretical approaches to programming, management, and evaluation From inside the book3/5(1). In addition to numerous examples of current operating systems, the book includes chapter-long case studies of UNIX, LINUX, and Windows NT. Cited By Tran G, Nghiem T, Ho T and Luong C Extended process scheduler for improving user experience in multi-core mobile systems Proceedings of the Seventh Symposium on Information and Communication. Included at the end of the book are case studies of two popular operating systems: Unix/Linux and Windows There is a bias toward the Unix/Linux approach, not surprising given the author's experience and academic bent, but this bias does not detract from Tanenbaum's analysis.

( views) An Operating Systems Vade Mecum, Second Edition by Raphael A. Finkel - Prentice Hall, The book is intended for a first course in operating systems at the undergraduate level. Operating systems are complex topic, this text unifies the diverse points of view and guide the novice step by step through the complexities of the subject. Operating Systems book. Read 21 reviews from the world's largest community for readers. Uses running case studies throughout the book, motivating the mat /5(21). The last section of the book offers actual case studies on Windows XP and Linux and contrasts the features of those operating systems with the theory of the book. Also, there are appendices that analyze the design concepts of three older operating systems (the FreeBSD System, The Mach System and Windows System) that are published. This book uses examples of many real-world operating systems to illustrate fundamental operating-system concepts. Particular attention is paid to Linux and Microsoft Windows, but we also refer to various versions of UNIX (including Solaris, BSD,andMacOS X). The text also provides several example programs written in C and Java.
