An accurate comprehensive book for Operating Systems in Distributed environment but not to be used as a textbook for beginners
17 January 2015
Well this is a really comprehensive guide that is quite lucid generally and helps you understand tons of concepts from the Distributed System domain. If you really are a graduate and want to know more about Operating Systems in the distributed environment and the similarities & differences between various algorithms on it this is an excellent choice. I am taking a point away for those who want to use this as a textbook. I would not recommend this as a textbook for Students. This is more like taking in knowledge kind of book rather than a textbook. There are plenty of Distributed Algorithms in which one might feel confused initially as which ones to do if not all of them. So use this as a companion book for clearing any concept. But it is a must have for those wanting to know things accurately.
