• Accompanying CD-ROM with the latest version of MINIX and simulators for running MINIX on other systems – A small, easy-to-understand highly reliable operating system is available for study; unique to this text.
• Relevant sections of MINIX code are described in detail in most chapters – Provides problems at the end of each chapter, with separate solutions manual for the instructor.
• Simulators for running MINIX on other systems are available.• MINIX includes networking based in TCP/IP – the full source code of the MINIX TCP/IP implementation is included on the CD-ROM.
Operating Systems Design and Implementation, 3e, is ideal for introductory courses on computer operating systems. Written by the creator of Minux, professional programmers will now have the most up-to-date tutorial and reference available today.
Revised to address the latest version of MINIX (MINIX 3), this streamlined, simplified new edition remains the only operating systems text to first explain relevant principles, then demonstrate their applications using a Unix-like operating system as a detailed example. It has been especially designed for high reliability, for use in embedded systems, and for ease of teaching.
