This edition also features new chapters on the history of the operating systems and on computer ethics, as well as a further case study on WindowsNT.

Memory management, including modern computer architectures and file system design and implementation are also covered.

Common operating systems (MS-DOS, OS/2, Sun OS5 and Macintosh) are used throughout to illustrate concepts and provide examples of performance characteristics.
