In this edition, the Sysinternals Suite is being used to demonstrate various key concepts, the same as it happened in previous releases.
The new Windows Internals 6th Edition, covers Windows 7 and Windows Server 2008 R2. Due to the amount of material, the book had to be split into two volumes. The second part will be out soon.
