Windows 7
The Missing Manual
Paperback      ISBN: 0596806396
Early reports on Windows 7 are encouraging: Those who've seen it applaud the way it fixes some of Vista's most painful shortcomings. It's speedier, has fewer intrusive and nagging screens, and is generally much more compatible with peripherals. Plus, Microsoft has introduced a slew of new features, including things like fast-access searching and better organization tools, easier WiFi connections and home networking setup, and even touchscreen computing for those lucky enough to own the latest hardware. The biggest downside? Learning how to navigate through all this new territory, starting with which of the four versions of Windows 7 you have (Starter, Home Premium, Professional, Ultimate). Thankfully, Windows 7: The Missing Manual will be there to help--a single book that offers coverage of all four versions. Like its predecessors, this book from New York Times columnist, bestselling author, and Missing Manuals creator David Pogue illuminates its subject with technical insight, plenty of wit, and hardnosed objectivity for beginners, veteran standalone PC users, and those who know their way around a network. This jargon-free book explains Windows 7 features so clearly -- revealing which work well and which don't - that it should have been in the box in the first place.

Advanced Programming in the Unix Environment
Advanced Programming in the Unix Environment
2nd Edition    Hardcover      ISBN: 0201433079
Rago (one of the Bell Laboratories developers who built UNIX System V, Release 4) updates the late Stevens' text on programming in the UNIX environment after some 13 years. He has updated the chapters on file input/output (I/O), files and directories, standard I/O library, system data files and information, process environment, process control, process relationships, signals, daemon processes, interprocess communication, network IPC (information processing center), terminal I/O, pseudo terminals, database libraries, and communicating with network printers. Rago has also added chapters on threads, multithreaded programming, and socket interfaces. Interfaces have been brought into line with the 2001 version of the POSIX.1 standard and case studies have been changed to cover more relevant real-world examples, most of which have been tested on the platforms of FreeBSD 5.2.1, the Linux2.4.22 kernel, Solaris 9, and Darwin 7.4.0 (the Free BSD/Mach hybrid underlying Apples Mac OS X 10.3).
