How to Make a Computer Operating System
“How to Make a Computer Operating System” is a comprehensive guide to the principles and practices of building a computer operating system from scratch. This book is written for individuals who want to learn about the process of creating an operating system and the fundamental concepts and technologies involved in building one. It is intended for computer science students, software developers, and professionals who want to understand the inner workings of an operating system and how to create their own.
The book begins by introducing the reader to the basics of operating system design and development, including the history of operating systems and the different types of operating systems. It covers the different components of an operating system, such as the kernel, the file system, and the device drivers, and how they interact to provide the basic functionality of an operating system. The reader will learn about the different types of operating system architectures, such as monolithic, microkernel, and hybrid, and how to choose the right architecture for their project.
As the book progresses, it delves deeper into more advanced topics such as process management, memory management, and security. The reader will learn about how to manage and schedule processes, how to manage and allocate memory, and how to implement security mechanisms to protect the operating system and user data.
The book also covers the latest trends and technologies in the field of operating system development, such as virtualization and cloud computing. The reader will learn about how virtualization can be used to create multiple virtual operating systems on a single physical machine and how cloud computing can be used to create scalable and highly available operating systems. Additionally, the book guide the reader on how to write their own kernel, file system, device driver and how to integrate them into
