Summary "By staying current, remaining relevant, and adapting to emerging course needs, this text has continued to define the operating systems course. This Seventh Edition not only presents the latest and most relevant systems, it also digs deeper to uncover those fundamental concepts that have remained constant throughout the evolution of today's operating systems. With this strong conceptual foundation in place, students can more easily understand the details related to specific systems."--BOOK JACKET
