Oh come on!

Certainly all systems have undocumented stuff that are left undocumented because the users are not supposed to use it. If they would, they couldn't change it.

- MacOS (pre-OS X)

"Revolution in the Valley"


Debatable about non-C non-Unixy part, but it surely isn't the focus of the whole stack.

"Mac OS X Internals: A Systems Approach"

- Oberon and its derivatives (1992 and 2013 versions, System 3, Insight ETHOS and A2)

- Symbian

"Symbian OS Internals: Real-time Kernel Programming"

"Symbian OS Platform Security: Software Development Using the Symbian OS Security Architecture"

"The Symbian OS Architecture Sourcebook: Design and Evolution of a Mobile Phone OS"

- Mesa and Mesa/Cedar

- JX


- Singularity,

- Barrelfish

- Midori,

"RustConf 2017 - Closing Keynote: Safe Systems Software and the Future of Computing"

"While never reaching commercial release, at one time Midori powered all of Microsoft’s natural language search service for the West Coast and Asia."


- Helios

- Muen

- GenodeOS

- Inferno

- Minix 3

- BeOS

"Be Developer's Guide"

"Be Advanced Topics"

- Windows

Not everything by a long shot, plenty more to re-discover like VMS,IBM i and Z, Unisys ClearPath, mbed,...

Just keep an open mind and don't idolatrize UNIX, yes it has a couple of good ideas, but they don't make it the be all end all of OS design.

The series of books known as "Windows System Internals"[0]

Raymond Chen of "Old New Thing" fame and all his friends[1]

The creator of process monitor occasionally writes nice blog posts about troubleshooting[2]

A lot of historical NT stuff is still valid, or at least mildly relevant today.

Windows Internals 7th Edition Book 1 is available already[0], and there will be 2 more books[1]. Russinovich and Solomon have stepped down a while ago, according to that forum thread, but the new book lists them as authors because Catlin and Hanrahan worked over the already existing stuff.
