Additional Book Details

A True Textbook for an Introductory Course, System Administration Course, or a Combination Course
Linux with Operating System Concepts merges conceptual operating system (OS) and Unix/Linux topics into one cohesive textbook for undergraduate students. The book can be used for a one- or two-semester course on Linux or Unix. It is complete with review sections, problems, definitions, concepts, and relevant introductory material, such as binary and Boolean logic, OS kernels, and the role of the CPU and memory hierarchy.
Details for Introductory and Advanced Users

The book covers Linux from both the user and system administrator positions. From a user perspective, it emphasizes command line interaction. From a system administrator perspective, the text reinforces shell scripting with examples of administration scripts that support the automation of administrator tasks.
Thorough Coverage of Concepts and Linux Commands

The author incorporates OS concepts not found in most Linux/Unix textbooks, including kernels, file systems, storage devices, virtual memory, and process management. He also introduces computer science topics, such as computer networks and TCP/IP, binary numbers and Boolean logic, encryption, and the GNUs C compiler. In addition, the text discusses disaster recovery planning, booting, and Internet servers.
