Understanding Operating Systems

by

Understanding Operating Systems Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This text provides a basic understanding of operating systems theory, a comparison of the major operating systems in use, and a description of the technical and operational tradeoffs inherent in each. The effective two-part organization covers the theory of operating systems, their historical roots, and their conceptual basis culminating with how these theories are applied in the specifics of five operating systems.

Book News Annotation:

This book provides a basic understanding of operating systems while avoiding technical discussion of the design and programming issues covered in traditional operating systems textbooks. Individual sections focus on issues common to all operating systems, and on specific operating systems. The later part contains a description of the technical and operational tradeoffs inherent in each system under review. Flynn teaches at the U. of Pittsburgh; McHoes, at Carlow College.
