A True PDF Textbook for an Introductory Course, System Administration Course, or a Combination Course

Linux with Operating System Concepts (PDF) merges conceptual operating system (OS) and Linux/Unix 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 problems, review sections, concepts, definitions, 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 ebook 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 textbook reinforces shell scripting with examples of administration scripts that support the automation of administrative tasks.

Thorough Coverage of Linux Commands and Concepts

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