I bought the book and am going to keep it because it is a great book BUT, I had to also rent the correct one for the US which is 9781118063330 because I was very confused about what a test or quiz was going to be on, when they said it was Chapters 1 - 4.
As for content, this book is great. After finishing a particularly long chapter, I found myself continuing to read simply because I was feeling more curious about what the author would talk about next.
This edition is great!

For students : a very good book to use.
I have two issues with this book (not including price):
- The index section at the back of the book is absolutely terrible. There are so many OS algorithms, concepts, abstractions, etc. but the majority are nowhere to be found in the index section. For example, Dining Philosophers problem. You cannot find it in the index section, but if you find the CPU Scheduling chapter/section there is at least one whole page dedicated to the topic.
- The book has so much content to go over that it is very easy to miss important details. I sometimes found that a whole paragraph will hold filler content when finally that last sentence will contain the information you are looking for. For example, reading about Page Swapping algorithms, under Second Chance, I wanted to know if every page bit is set to zero or one. After reading the section for a bit I noticed I missed a sentence that stated all the bits are set to zero. This is most likely my own fault for missing the sentence, but I think it's important enough that it should stand out.
Those are my very picky issues with the book, everything else is great.
Gut dargestellt sind: Historie, Sicherheit, Schutz, Interrupts, Algorithmen
Weniger gut dargestellt sind: Messergebnisse z. B. zu Plattenzugriffen und Scheduling (mir gefiel "Operating Systems Three Easy Pieces" besser).
Mir hat das Buch gut gefallen. Die Fallstudien zu Windows 7 und Linux 3 waren aufschlussreich. Zum besseren Verständnis enthält jedes Kapitel Zeichnungen, Code-Beispiele, Fragen, Programmierübungen und Linux-Projekte. Auf der Webseite gibt es Anhänge zu BSD-Unix (mit Dateisystem und Netzwerk) sowie Mach (Mikrokernel mit Nachrichtenübermittlung, in Mac OS X verwendet).
Hinweis: Die "Indian Edition" ist in einem kleineren Taschenbuch-Format, aber kostengünstig ;-)
Regardless, you will still save more money if you have to take this to Staples (or wherever) to fix the binding when it becomes loose (doesn't look like it will happen soon, looks like it will last a couple years).
I'm giving it 5 stars due to the price to quality ratio. My two complaints are just nitpicking. I highly recommend the India Edition.
Also, this is a colour copy for those of you who are wondering (not black and white print - COLOUR).
Used it as a bedtime storybook.
But I still don't understand why they got dinosaurs in the O.S.
Like there may be bugs but dinosaurs,
Facile da capire e spiega concetti, anche complessi, con molti esempi.
Qualità della stampa e della carta ok!
