Overview

Operating System Concepts continues to provide a solid theoretical foundation for understanding operating systems. The 8th Edition Update includes more coverage of the most current topics in the rapidly changing fields of operating systems and networking, including open-source operating systems. The use of simulators and operating system emulators is incorporated to allow operating system operation demonstrations and full programming projects. The text also includes improved conceptual coverage and additional content to bridge the gap between concepts and actual implementations. New end-of-chapter problems, exercises, review questions, and programming exercises help to further reinforce important concepts, while WileyPLUS continues to motivate students and offer comprehensive support for the material in an interactive format.
