¿This book¿demonstrates the historic development of modern operating systems¿Readers will learn not only what these modern operating system landmarks are, but ¿how operating system designers think.¿¿This book is a must-read for anyone who is serious about operating systems research.¿ -- Computing Reviews

"This excellent presentation of a collection of seminal operating system research papers has been compiled by a widely published and acknowledged authority in the field. … The author’s insightful selection successfully distills and succinctly presents the operating system research ethos, simplifying complex issues without belittling them, while managing to preserve the obvious enthusiasm shared by these pioneers. … This book is a mine of useful information that will prove useful to those students wishing to gain an insight into … operating system design."
