Windows kernel expert and kernel "professor" David Solomon and Windows Kernel Technical Fellow Mark Russinovich have written another great book covering, in great detail, the internal composition of Windows Vista and Windows Server 2008. A third author,Alex Ionescu, joined the fray this time around. Together, they've just released Windows Internals Fifth Edition. My order has been submitted! If you want to really understand the mechanics of Windows' latest generation general purpose kernel, then go get this book.
David was in Redmond recently conducting deep training on the Windows 7 kernel, which contains 95% of the same ingredients as the Windows Vista kernel. So, of course we had to get the dynamic duo together to talk about their book, the Windows kernel, their history (they've been working together for a long time) and their future.
Enjoy! Happy reading.
