    It s a textbook on Operating Systems There s not really all that much to say about it beyond that, so instead I will compare it to two other OS textbooks that I ve read, Operating Systems A Modern Perspective by Gary Nutt and Modern Operating Systems by Tanenbaum, generally regarded as the seminal textbook on the subject.OS Concepts is, to put it bluntly, very dry This is somewhat expected with a book on Operating Systems, but the level of dryness is worth noting I often found the book difficult to stay awake reading Compared with Tanenbaum s book, it s slightly less dry and occasionally conversational, but it doesn t come close to approaching Nutt s book in terms of presentation and readability.OS Concepts also has a strange tendency to rapidly switch from being extremely detailed and getting into very low level mechanics to being almost humorously broad In one chapter I was looking at detailed drawings of how virtual memory works in operating systems, and a few chapters later I was reading about what a virus is and how you should use tapes to back up important files The tone is all over the place, with some chapters feeling like Operating Systems for Dummies full of advice for how to effectively USE your computer and pick good passwords, and other chapt...

    You learn operating systems by reading operating system source code, not the dinosaur book.

    Very helpful and if you are IT person, you will have read it decades ago I mean schools usually give a course where this book is the reference, if not the only material.

    Serves as a great complement to applied books like Linux Kernel Development or Linux Device Drivers, filling all remaining theoretical gaps and providing the history of OS evolution Fits well for self study Almost every exercise, which there is a lot of, has a reference solution available either on the book s website or in the instructor s manual for the 7th edition...

    Good for beginners it s so easy to read that I can read it when I m too sleepy for the Decline Fall.I d like to find an equally approachable computer architecture book.

    I read most of this book word by word and I am still pissed at what a waste of time that was If you want to learn, read tanenbaum.If its for a class, I wish you luck, since with a professor who has chosen such a book you will probably need it.
