Uresh Vahalia - Unix Internals, The New Frontiers.
Prentice Hall, 1996
ISBN 0-13-101908-2


In a word, this book is encyclopaedic! It's a painstakingly documented
internal analysis of design choices and tradeoffs, using a handful of
commercial and academic Unices as case studies. He covers absolutely
every major topic of interest to kernel hackers. The writing is quite
even-handed and shows no apparent favoritism towards any one philosophy.

Finally, no, it does not mention Linux :-(. Still worth having. You'd
have to pry my copy out of my cold, dead hands.
