Ads Place

Puppy Linux is one of the earliest lightweight Linux distributions, originally developed by Barry Kauler from Australia in 2003 (which is still active today). It is a very reliable operating system for both old computers and new Linux users! It is small in size, simple in structure, fast in speed, and comes with a wealth of drivers and applications. Even better, it can be installed and run directly on storage devices like external hard disks and USB flash drives (that is, it can be booted from any computer that supports BIOS and UEFI).

Understanding the Linux Kernel, 1st & 3rd Editions HD PDF, EPUB

The kernel of Linux is responsible for handling all the interactions between CPU and outside world, deciding the order of all programs share the processor time, effectively managing hundreds or thousands of processes to share the limited memory available in system, skillfully planning the data transmission as a whole to save the time consumed by CPU on waiting for the slower hard drive. Therefore, in-depth study of the most essential parts of the Linux kernel lets you completely understand what makes Linux run normally and why it can work well in various system distributions.
