Intended for juniors, seniors, and first-year graduate students, this book takes a modern approach to the Operating Systems course. By using this text, students will obtain an understanding of how contemporary operating systems and middleware work.
The purpose of this book is to provide a neutral view of as many Operating Systems as possible. This book strives to provide solid information on Operating Systems without the ever-prevalent 'distribution/Operating System bias'.
