Guide to Parallel Operating Systems with Windows 7 and Linuxby Ron Carswell
Synopses & Reviews
The second edition of GUIDE TO PARALLEL OPERATING SYSTEMS WITH WINDOWS 7 AND LINUX continues its unique approach of examining two of the most prominent operating systems in parallel. Rather than using a compare and contrast model, each concept is first presented conceptually before demonstrating it simultaneously on both operating systems. Readers are able to instantly switch between Windows 7 and Linux Fedora 13 to complete the myriad of hands-on activities that reinforce the similarities between the two operating systems for each conceptual task. The virtualization approach used in the text provides complete flexibility and enables learners to use Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, Sun VirtualBox, or VMWare Workstation. This comprehensive guide will help readers develop the competencies they need in Windows 7 and Linux to maximize success in today's classroom as well as in the business environment.
Parallel Operating Systems with Windows and Linux introduces the key features of computer operating systems. It assumes that the students have previously used a personal computer with the Windows or Linux operating systems. This text uses a unique approach for the presentation of operating system concepts. Each concept will first be presented conceptually. Then the concepts will be demonstrated on both of the two operating systems in parallel. This parallel structure will be enabled by using Microsoft Virtual PC 2004. Students will be able to instantly switch between the two operating systems to complete the numerous hands-on activities.
