Mauro on Solaris Internals++

Jim Mauro sent me this pointer to his post-book cathartic release. If you're trolling through the OpenSolaris source code, or trying to figure out why your application seems slow (because you're using the filesystem badly) or just want to understand what happens inside a system call (and why repeated system calls are bad for your health), Mauro and McDougall's Solaris Internals is the book for you.

Ultimate props: during next week's all-Sun R&D review, I'm presenting an overview of the core components of Solaris. The lead-in diagram, given to me by the VP who runs Solaris engineering, is taken from Solaris Internals.

Congratulations to Jim and company on completing round two in the book business. Now you can buy me lunch when I'm in Somerset without using the book as a time sink excuse.
