I read most of this book word by word and I am still pissed at what a waste of time that was. If you want to learn, read tanenbaum. If its for a class, I wish you luck, since with a professor who has chosen such a book you will probably need it.
Apr 10, DPeashooter rated it did not like it. Monotone and obtuse.
Has an affinity for fancy words - which normally ignites my interest, but not in this case somehow. I love this book. Apr 10, Patrick Coakley rated it liked it Shelves: Like most people, this was the text used for my operating systems course. I found it to be incredibly hard to follow at times and quite boring.
Some people might argue that it's hard to make content like this interesting, but I found other authors, such as Andrew Tanenbaum, cover the material much faster and in a more understandable way. My main issue is that it assumes knowledge on some things but will explain others in an inconsistent manner. I generally had to search for a quite a few things Like most people, this was the text used for my operating systems course.
I generally had to search for a quite a few things when taking notes because I didn't understand the way they were being introduced.
Aside from the writing style and presentation, I felt like it was a fine enough book, just not necessarily the only one you'll need if you're entirely new to studying operating systems in this way. Nov 14, Arvind Prakash rated it it was amazing. I am fairly new to the Operating systems and linux world. This is my first book on operating system theory and i found it to be pretty descriptive about the concepts instead of just brushing up on things. I would recommend this book to someone who has been recently been exposed to the linux kernel and feels the need to understand the big picture or some of the basic clockworks that drive an Operating system and this is my no means the Bible of operating systems but a good starting poi Disclaimer: I would recommend this book to someone who has been recently been exposed to the linux kernel and feels the need to understand the big picture or some of the basic clockworks that drive an Operating system and this is my no means the Bible of operating systems but a good starting point and also is suitable for the intermediate audience.
May 07, Sam Bateman rated it it was amazing. A fantastic overview of operating systems and the components that make them up. Generally not detailed enough for implementations, but there are other good books for that. This book is nearly completely self contained, although I would recommend doing all the example problems at the end of each chapter and then at least one of the programming assignments.
They will really help hammer home your understanding of the concepts. Nov 08, Claudiu rated it liked it. One of the recommended textbooks on operating systems. If not reading this for your course, it's not really a book you want to read cover to cover but something you refer to when you want to understand the fundamentals on a topic. While it's better structured than Tanenbaum's "Modern Operating Systems", it's also certainly less entertaining.
Jan 28, Sam Pollard rated it really liked it.
It's hard to make a book on operating systems interesting but the dino book does a pretty good job. Another challenge is making things general to all operating systems without making vacuous statements which Silberschatz does well. Nov 23, Kevin Winata rated it really liked it. Mar 05, Sadia Dina rated it really liked it. Sep 25, Arturo rated it it was amazing.
It is a very clear and easy to read to learn the basics and even more advanced concepts that involve operating systems. Feb 07, Ahmed Qasim rated it really liked it. Easy to understand and very deep explanation about concepts. I remember this being one of my most-loved books in university It was also, at least for me, overwhelmingly dense since in university I was being piled under new concepts that didn't sink in due to lack of practical application and general vocational immaturity.
Reading it again It's possibly a good reference, given that my particular copy is ancient. But I have to wonder I remember this being one of my most-loved books in university But I have to wonder if there's anything in this book that can't be reconstructed from wikipedia and other resources out there. There are also many great legitimately free operating systems books, like Operating Systems: Three Easy Pieces, that it's hard for me to justify it except as a well-curated and well-written, if not pedagogically unique, guide.
It's hard for me to say the same thing here.
Apr 29, Joe rated it really liked it. I read the fourth edition, from I think writing an OS textbook must be a difficult case of trying to achieve balance: OS Concepts does a pretty good job of finding balance. The topics covered are pretty good: The amount of detail was generally just about right; some areas could have used more detail, and some things could have been trimmed.
Of course, that might be easier to say for me now, given that the edition I read came out almost two decades ago -- then again, the things I'm talking about have been critically important for longer than that.
It is funny to see how some of the resource constraints have changed over time. At a few points, it's almost shocking: Operating Systems Concepts is a great undergraduate-level resource for its subject, focusing, as its name advertises, on the concepts behind building an operating system.
Outside of the exercises, the text spends relatively little time on code examples or gritty details, relegating that to suggested reading or simply saying "Go look at an open-source operating system! This emphasis on concepts makes a great deal of sense given the variance in how to accomplish goals and the sheer amount of gro Operating Systems Concepts is a great undergraduate-level resource for its subject, focusing, as its name advertises, on the concepts behind building an operating system.
This emphasis on concepts makes a great deal of sense given the variance in how to accomplish goals and the sheer amount of groundwork which the book needs to cover. The book is already over pages!
This book is a great read for any long-time user of operating systems who wants to understand the amazing piece of software that orchestrates their entire computing experience, as well as being great review for practitioners who want a refresher. With Safari, you learn the way you learn best.
