Did even the authors read this before publication? 3. Dezember 2013
Von Marc W. Abel - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Here's a promising book with insightful exercises at the end of the chapter; however, the actual delivery is annoying and disappointing. I once took a chemistry exam with 100 other students, and the person who got the worst score was the teaching assistant who wrote the answer key. In too many places, it seems like an equally unsuitable TA was trusted to write the meager eight-page LARGE TYPE index (the book has 944 pages), dream up several of the exercises, and proofread the book for clarity and accuracy.

Typographic conventions in this book need more attention; for example the two-letter variable name on page 405 looks at first like multiplication, and page 393 has commas that would appear to be thousands separators but are not. The Chapter 8 exercises in general need to face a random drug test; for instance:

8.22 What is the maximum amount of physical memory?

8.24 Consider a computer system with a 32-bit logical address and 4-KB page size. The system supports up to 512 MB of physical memory. How many entries are there in each of the following?

If you're wondering what the context is for the first question, or what the remainder of the second question is, referring to the book isn't going to help you. You've already read both exercises in full.

Terminology is abused at many points; for instance the word "paging" abruptly jumps to mean "swapping" in the summary of Chapter 8, inconsistent with what the chapter defined paging as meaning. In other places statements of fact are made (on page 404, hardware that supports demand paging is sufficient to support swapping), but proven false moments later (on page 405, oh by the way, swapping requires additionally that CPU instructions be restartable). There are also various "smell test" faults, like on pages 239-240 where it's falsely explained that deadlocks can't occur if transactional memory is used. In actuality certain kinds of deadlocks won't occur, but other kinds of deadlocks can indeed. The problem with students being permitted to read books like this is that they are prone to refer to these texts later as professionals, resulting in careers that look like the Healthcare.gov rollout of October 1, 2013.

The newness and modernness of this December 2012 edition is insufficient to support the publisher's $173.95 list price, especially in light of the very low preparation standard this book places in front of computer engineering pupils. Instructors would do their pupils a service by selecting a somewhat older, respected operating system text and using their own knowledge and other contemporary information to discuss recent implementations. For example in Chapter 9, Virtual Memory, 23 of the 27 references are more than 10 years old, and nine of the 27 are more than 40 years old. The presence of older references is not a red flag, but the paucity of newer ones suggests that the authors and publishers of this edition have contributed scantly.

Read Modern Operating Systems instead! 6. Mai 2014
Von Ji Xiang - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe
Wordy and woefully incoherent writing. Almost EVERY section includes some totally incomprehensible sudden transition, as if after one author has finished writing the section, another one or two authors thought he'd better add something which has nothing to do with the original train of thought at all. Also the incoherency is staggering: For example, when talking about memory, after talking about external fragmentation in the context of "blocks of memory"(holes), it suddenly talks about internal fragmentation in the same paragraph without giving any context, only to introduce paging(the cause of internal fragmentation) two sections later. This makes a very confusing and frustrating read. Key concepts are easily lost in the effort of trying to salvage something from this chaos. I can hardly believe this is supposed to be a college-level engineering textbook instead of some intentionally abstruse and self-contradictory literature piece. I have long not read such a terrible textbook. Instead, the well-known Modern Operating Systems is far more succinct, coherent, and very probably more in-depth.

Book is okay for beginners - not for advanced/college level 9. Dezember 2013
Von Nathan Adams - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Gebundene Ausgabe Verifizierter Kauf
This book is very bias toward Linux with the occasional reference to Windows. I would say some of the material is just wrong - perhaps they do this to make it easier to understand. For example, they talk about OS security models and talk about "layers" - however while they are technically layers the industry calls them rings (look up ring -1). In Chapter 2 - they mention a lot of system calls - many of them are just wrong. For example - 2.4.1 - there is no end system call (they might have meant exit). 2.4.2 - they mention a "delete" system call; there is no delete system call but there is a remove or unlink system calls (at least in Linux). Again reading through Chapter 2 they are obviously very bias towards Linux...which there isn't anything necessarily wrong with that but the material they put together can actually be dangerous because to a new person who didn't know anything about system calls (or a professor teaching out of this book) may make people believe there are system calls that don't exist or terms that aren't used. Maybe they were just using it as an example - but personally if I were to write a book I would use terms, concepts, and system calls that were actually used such that if someone wanted to find more information they could google them.

I gave it 3 stars because I think it's a great starting point - just needs to be reviewed a little bit. This book has a lot of great information and I think it does a pretty good job explaining things so it's great for someone who may not understand how an OS works.

Also as an aside note - I was disappointed when the index entry for "page address extension (PAE) has 396 - but that points to a blank page....

This textbook is used as a main textbook in an Operating Systems course in my college. I think the most needed materials on this field of knowledge are presented in this book. I would recommend this book to those who want to get basic and good knowledge on operating systems.

This book is great. Somehow it transcends the typical dryness you get from a textbook and is actually readable. Each chapter is like an essay that explores the technical aspects of some aspect of operating systems. I wish the author wrote more books.
