    Wonderful book

    It is a wonderful book of operating system. Very simple, easy language, clear description about each and every topic. Those who want to start with knowledge of O.S. must surely go for this book. The book is gud for theoretical portion, but if one want to go for numerical portion then must try any other book as numerical section is limited.
