The Design of the UNIX Operating System 1st Edition (Paperback) Price: Rs.245

In this book the author traces the popularity of the UNIX system throughout the computer industry. He describes internal algorithms and structures that form the basis of the operating system (kernel) and their relationship to the programmer interface. The text is a description of the general flow of various algorithms and most important, a description of how they interact with each other. Algorithms are presented in a C-like pseudo-code to aid the reader in understanding the natural language description and their names correspond to the procedure names in the kernel.

A good starter material

Although a very old book on the design of the unix operation system, I strongly believe that aspirants who want to learn about OS design could read this book as the first book just after understanding OS theory. I read this book 13 years back to get introduced to the OS fundamentals in a practical sense. This book covers the details on what was being practiced in OS design and implementation. Modern day operating systems have evolved a lot after this book, but legacy still remains, which should make this book still an interesting read.

There is nothing cutting edge in this book (with respect to today's world) but a lot of insights on why and how.

Awesome Book!

This is THE BOOK to study about the various commands used in the UNIX systems. Truly an in-depth treatment of the concepts. No wonder Linus Torvalds referred to this book extensively while working on his Linux operating system. Truly a classic and a must for all UNIX enthuasiasts. Its amazing that this book has stood the test of time and is still relevant to most programmers and computer professionals. Readable and enlightening.

Beginner, intermediate , advanced - this book is for all of them. Maurice J Bach explains with great simplicity yet very technically concepts in UNIX.
This book explains the algorithms behind the commands used in UNIX hence enabling the reader to appreciate the concept. Highly recommended !

Must have for operating system developers

If you are working on or trying to understand an operating system structure, this book is a must have. Its not unnecessarily bulky like the other books and has the most accurate and right information required.

Flipkart was awesome as always.

Hats off to Morice Bach

This is very good book. Enjoyed learning design of Unix OS and algorithms.
However, it is bit difficult to understand. I think, reader of this book has to be a good end user first.

#. This is the best book on UNIX architecture, on earth. It was followed by Linus Torvalds (while he was writing the linux kernel). (View complete review)
