Guide to Parallel Operating Systems with Windows 10 and Linux, 3rd Edition / Edition 3

Examine two of the most prominent operating systems — Windows 10 and Linux CentOS7 — in parallel with the unique approach found only in GUIDE TO PARALLEL OPERATING SYSTEMS WITH WINDOWS 10 AND LINUX, 3E. Rather than using a compare and contrast model, the book presents each topic conceptually before demonstrating it simultaneously on both operating systems. You are able to switch instantly between Windows 10 and Linux CentOS 7 to complete the myriad of hands-on activities that reinforce the similarities between the two operating systems for each conceptual task. The text's virtualization approach provides flexibility that enables you to use Microsoft Hyper-V Client, Oracle VirtualBox, or VMWare Workstation. This comprehensive guide helps you develop the competencies you need in Windows 10 and Linux to maximize success in today's classroom as well as in tomorrow's business environment.
