As the regular teacher of an operating systems class for computer science majors, I have evaluated many potential textbooks. This book ranks up among the top tier of books that could be used in the class. The coverage is complete, both in breadth and suitable depth. Diagrams are extensively used; there is coverage of how networking is incorporated into the actions of operating systems and specific details regarding Unix, MS-DOS, Windows operating systems and Linux are included. The text is understandable, easily readable and well organized. There are three sets of exercises at the end of the chapters: research topics, exercises and advanced exercises. Unfortunately, no solutions to any of them are included. For the first time in several years, I am not teaching operating systems this fall. Therefore, it was not necessary for me to select a text. If that were not the case, this book would certainly have been among my top two or three candidates.
