In the Parable of the Lost Sheep, the shepherd leaves the 99 sheep to find the one. Clearly, this is Jesus' endorsement of the Right Thing. He is saying you should go through significant effort to make sure your flock (system) is complete. If you do not do this, you are denying the will of the Lord. What do you say to this, New Jersey aproach advocates?

So, IMO: not better than the Rust book. It gives a first glance of Rust, something to accustom the eyes to a different syntax, but sidesteps the difficult bits, which can make transitioning so frustrating.

>>1 1 Judge not, that ye be not judged.
2 For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete, it shall be measured to you again.
3 And why beholdest thou the mote that is in thy brother's eye, but considerest not the beam that is in thine own eye?
4 Or how wilt thou say to thy brother, Let me pull out the mote out of thine eye; and, behold, a beam is in thine own eye?
5 Thou hypocrite, first cast out the beam out of thine own eye; and then shalt thou see clearly to cast out the mote out of thy brother's eye.

Or, you know, at least tell us which platform you are running on, instead of just complaining about other platform.

Speaking of OS archaeology is anyone aware of any good operating systems textbook that discuss systems which are not UNIX-like (e.g VMS, Alto Executive, Genera, BeOS, etc. I'd also be interested in the various mainframe systems). XINU is sort of not UNIX-like and seems to be an excellent approach to the subject, but is not quite what I'm looking for presently. Also to be clear if someone has this book it would more than likely go on my backlog rather than be read immediately.

Of course, those aren't textbooks, now that I reread the question.

Well, considering the dark ages we live in might be useful to return to the old Aristotle instead of looking for reprocessed stuff anyway. Thanks for the links I've added them to my queue.
