"Operating System" is the most essential program of all, without which it becomes cumbersome to work with a computer. It is the interface between the hardware and computer users making the computer a pleasant device to use. "The Operating System: Concepts and Techniques" clearly defines and explains the concepts: process (responsibility, creation, living, and termination), thread (responsibility, creation, living, and termination), multiprogramming, multiprocessing, scheduling, memory management (non-virtual and virtual), interprocess communication/synchronization (busy-wait-based, semaphore-based, and message-based), deadlock, and starvation. Real-life techniques presented are based on UNIX, Linux, and contemporary Windows. The book has briefly discussed agent-based operating systems, macro-kernel, microkernel, extensible kernels, distributed, and real-time operating systems. The book is for everyone who is using a computer but is still not at ease with the way the operating system manages programs and available resources in order to perform requests correctly and speedily. High school and university students will benefit the most, as they are the ones who turn to computers for all sorts of activities, including email, Internet, chat, education, programming, research, playing games etc. It is especially beneficial for university students of Information Technology, Computer Science and Engineering. Compared to other university textbooks on similar subjects, this book is downsized by eliminating lengthy discussions on subjects that only have historical value.

Structured in four parts—Operating Systems (OS) Concepts, Practice, Overview of contemporary OS and Projects—the Fourth Edition of the book aims to provide a practical view of contemporary OS, covering different design considerations and patterns of use. The section on Concepts covers fundamental principles, such as file systems, process management, memory management, input-output, resource sharing, Inter-process Communication (IPC), distributed computing, OS security, real-time and micro-kernel design. This new edition also comes with a revised section on Practice to make the book compatible with Linux. The entire section is thoroughly revised to enable the students and readers learn the examples based on popular Linux distribution, such as Ubuntu. The coverage of Linux, Windows Vista, VxWorks and OS for mobile/handheld devices, such as Android, continues the tradition of upgrading the book to contemporary OS. The chapter on OS Security is also revised in this edition to reflect the importance of secured engineering practices in OS usage patterns. This book is intended to the students of Computer Science/Engineering, Computer Applications and Information Technology. As the knowledge of Operating Systems is essential for the IT practitioners as well, this book caters to the needs of those who might not have had a formal Computer Science/Engineering education or training for updating their knowledge on contemporary OS design.
