Overview

Applied Operating Systems Concepts, 1/e Windows XP Update Edition is based on the best selling text Operating System Concepts, 6/e, 2001 by Abraham Silberschatz, Peter Baer Galvin and Greg Gagne. Like OSC, Applied provides a clear description of the concepts that underlie operating systems. One of the key differences is that Java is used to present many of these ideas and included are numerous examples that pertain specifically to popular operating systems such as UNIX, Solaris 2, Windows NT, Mach, the Apple Macintosh OS, IBM's OS/2 and Linux. The 1/e Update Edition offers improved conceptual coverage, added content to bridge the gap between concepts and actual implementations and a new chapter on the newest Operating System to capture the attention of critics, consumers, and industry alike: Windows XP.

The advent of Java technology has given the authors an excellent vehicle to illustrate many of the most important concepts in modern operating systems today. Topics like multitasking, CPU scheduling, process synchronization, deadlock, security, and distributed systems lend themselves very well to demonstrations using Java technology.

    Different first editions, BEWARE

    Well written and easy to read. I was displeased with ordering ISBN 0-471-26314-1 and receiving ISBN 0-471-36508-4 with a 'Windows XP Supplement.' Both books are entitled First Edition. The page numbers do not correlate between both 'First Editions,' and this can add a bit of confusion if working with a professor and students with the 'latest' First Edition. I believe in receiving what I believe I ordered, the 'latest' First Edition with my specific ISBN. This was not the case. I'm certain B&N will straighten things out. Just be aware that different versions exist, all First Edition.
