Third Edition Reviewer comments:

"Uses a unique teaching style to present, in an unparalleled pedagogical approach, the evolution of fifty years of operating systems research; no other book provides as accessible and comprehensive a tutorial."

Euripides Montagne
University of Central Florida

"Deitel understands the Linux kernel very well and is very good at explaining it. Even though I have been a heavy Linux user and SysAdmin for eight years and have hacked both Linux and Unix kernels, I learned a lot."

Bob Toxen
Author of Real World Linux Security, 2/e and Contributor to Berkeley Unix

"This is a comprehensive update of the classic book by Harvey Deitel in the light of new developments in operating systems over the past decade. The in-depth case studies on Linux and Windows XP connect abstract ideas of OS design to two of the fastest growing real-world operating systems."

Dibyendu Baksi
Scientific Technologies Corp

"This book is excellent; a superb mix of theory and application; spot-on accuracy, relevancy and application of case
studies to the theory of OS design."
