McGraw-Hill is proud to introduce the third edition of Jane and Charles Holcombe’s Survey of Operating Systems. This edition is a unique revision of the successful previous editions. Every chapter has been updated to include more illustrations and hands-on activities for students, building a foundation for IT success through a fundamental understanding of desktop operating systems, including Windows 7, Mac OS X, and Linux. Due to market feedback and customer response, the textbook has been streamlined to provide a new pedagogy, including more extensive coverage on security presented earlier in the text and a new chapter on Desktop Virtualization. Survey of Operating Systems offers today’s students a visual, interactive, and empowering approach to learning desktop operating systems so they can build their foundation for IT success!
