This is a book for curious people. It attempts to answer the basic question “how does it work?” As such, it does not explain how to call documented APIs and DDIs to accomplish some specific goal. There is plenty of information available on these subjects, including the MSDN Library, the WDK documentation and several excellent books. Rather, its purpose is to analyze how the Virtual Memory Manager works, simply because it is something worth knowing. With a certain mindset, it might even be something fun to know.Even though this book gives a fairly detailed description of the Virtual Memory Manager, it is not reserved for experienced kernel level programmers. Parts I and II provide information on the x64 processor and enough details on kernel mode code execution to help readers approaching these subjects for the first time.This book describes the Windows 7 x64 implementation of the Virtual Memory Manager. All of the analysis and experiments have been performed on this particular version only.

The second edition of GUIDE TO PARALLEL OPERATING SYSTEMS WITH WINDOWS 7 AND LINUX continues its unique approach of examining two of the most prominent operating systems in parallel. Rather than using a compare and contrast model, each concept is first presented conceptually before demonstrating it simultaneously on both operating systems. Readers are able to instantly switch between Windows 7 and Linux Fedora 13 to complete the myriad of hands-on activities that reinforce the similarities between the two operating systems for each conceptual task. The virtualization approach used in the text provides complete flexibility and enables learners to use Microsoft Virtual PC 2007, Sun VirtualBox, or VMWare Workstation. This comprehensive guide will help readers develop the competencies they need in Windows 7 and Linux to maximize success in today's classroom as well as in the business environment.
