3.0 out of 5 stars Mostly "Operating Systems", little "Middleware" May 28 2008
By Thomas E. Seeley - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
I bought the book to get more background on middleware. However, the book is rather just a book on operating systems in general. The smattering of middleware discussion does not merit the mention of it on the book's cover.
3.0 out of 5 stars Avoid the Nabu Press version Feb. 9 2015
By M. Hailperin - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Print on Demand (Paperback)
Needless to say, this book on computer operating systems is not a "a reproduction of a book published before 1923," contrary to the description. Rather, it is a reproduction of a more recent book of mine -- but not the most recent version that is available. Anyone can get a more up-to-date, higher-quality version for free as a PDF (or the LaTeX source). For anyone who wants the latest version turned into a paperback, there are plenty of companies that will do that for a reasonable charge. The Nabu version is a mistake. (Please ignore the number of stars. I don't see any way to provide factual information about a particular reprint of my book without giving some number of stars to my own book.)
