Excellent text

This is an excellent text for students of the 'Operating Systems' course, and deals with the innards of UNIX. Any UNIX enthusiast will love this book. This book is not for beginners as it deals with the inner workings and principles involved in the design of the OS. Difficult concepts like the kernel algorithms are explained in the best possible way. A tough yet satisfying read.
