About This Book :
A wonderful book by Professor Tanenbaum on modern operating systems. It is highly recommended to everyone for whom the computer is more than a game console and a typewriter. Although this publication deals with the insides of operating systems, it is worth getting acquainted with it even if it is the OS that you are not particularly interested in, solely for the sake of expanding your horizons. The text is easy to read, written with humor and designed for a fairly wide audience. To understand the basic ideas, a rather general idea of computer architecture and a minimum of programming knowledge is enough.
