The tenth edition of Operating System Concepts, continues to provide a solid theoretical foundation for understanding operating systems. The tenth edition has been revised to keep it fresh and up-to-date with contemporary examples of how operating systems function, as well as enhanced interactive elements to improve learning and the student's experience with the material. It combines instruction on concepts with real-world applications so that students can understand the practical usage of the content. End-of-chapter problems, exercises, review questions, and programming exercises help to further reinforce important concepts. New interactive self-assessment problems are provided throughout the text to help students monitor their level of understanding and progress. A Linux virtual machine (including C & Java source code and development tools) allows students to complete programming exercises that help them engage further with the material.
