|Windows Internals by Mark E. Russinovich & David A.Solomon|
Windows Internals, Fifth Edition is intended for advanced computer professionals (both developers and system administrators) who want to understand how the core components of the Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008 operating systems work internally. With this knowledge, developers can better comprehend the rationale behind design choices when building applications specific to the Windows platform. Such knowledge can also help developers debug complex problems. System administrators can benefit from this information as well, because understanding how the operating system works “under the covers” facilitates understanding the performance behavior of the system and makes troubleshooting system
problems much easier when things go wrong. After reading this book, you should have a better understanding of how Windows works and why it behaves as it does.
