Introduction to Operating Systems: Behind the Desktop takes a unique approach to the teaching of operating systems, starting with what you will already know - the GUI desktop - before taking you behind, below and beyond the scenes to explore those 'invisible' aspects of the subject. No prerequisite knowledge is assumed other than a general knowledge of programming.
