Today I bought Mac OS X Internals by Amit Singh of kernelthread.com fame.
It’s a massive 1640 pages long book and Amit has been receiving rave reviews for its technical accuracy and readability.
The books covers all aspects of Mac OS X including:
- The history of Mac OS X
- The Mach microkernel
- The BSD, X, Carbon, Cocoa and Java application environments
- The PowerPC and Intel processors
- System startup (launchd for instance)
- Process and memory management
- The HFS+ file system
Wish me courage :-)
