About the book:

This Updated edition of Operating Systems, 2e brings this edition up-to-date in regards to the latest Operating Systems. It features material on the latest version of Windows 2000 and Linux, and also provides updated lab exercises for courses that do user-level programming projects in lab (whether they be using UNIX, Linux or Windows). Gary Nutt provides an understanding of contemporary operating system practice through a complete discussion of operating system principles, supplemented with code, algorithms, implementation issues, and lab exercises. The book's flexible arrangement, which separates principles from practice, allows professors to choose the appropriate breadth and depth of each topic presentation, as well as the balance they wish to strike between principles and practice. Each chapter begins with a conceptual presentation, then moves into the underlying theory that supports the concept. Examples (generic and specific commercial OS examples) support these presentations. Operating Systems also covers modern topics such as threads, concurrency, and distributed systems. It addresses both quantitative and qualitative theory, but is not overly mathematically sophisticated. It is an ideal text for professors who are interested in introducing students to core operating system concepts by and reinforcing these concepts with examples from and practice with popular real-world operating systems, namely Linux/UNIX and Windows 2000.
