Michael Kozuch, Babu Pillai, and Jason Campbell provided valuable insight on memory system performance, multi-core Preface systems, and the power wall.

Although hello is a very simple program, every major part of the system must work in concert in order for it to run to completion. In a sense, the goal of this book is to help you understand what happens and why, when you run hello on your system. We begin our study of systems by tracing the lifetime of the hello program, from the time it is created by a programmer, until it runs on a system, prints its simple message, and terminates. As we follow the lifetime of the program, we will briefly introduce the key concepts, terminology, and components that come into play.
