Operating System Concepts with Java, now in its eighth edition, continues to provide a solid theoretical foundation for understanding operating systems in the language with which many students are most comfortable. The eighth edition now includes more coverage of the most current topics and applications, improved conceptual coverage and additional content to bridge the gap between concepts and actual implementations. New end-of-chapter problems, exercises, review questions, and programming exercises help to further reinforce important concepts, while WileyPLUS continues to motivate students and offer comprehensive support for the material in an interactive format.
