Limitations: The preface states: "While it goes into greater depth than the tutorials, there are several topics that are outside its scope, such as the structure and implementation of radio stacks or existing TinyOS libraries. It focuses on how to write nesC code, and explains the concepts and reasons behind many of the nesC and TinyOS design decisions. If you are interested in a brief introduction to TinyOS programming, then you should probably start with the tutorials, and if youre interested in details on particular TinyOS subsystems you should probably consult TEPs. Both of these can be found in the doc/html directory of a TinyOS distribution."

ReviewText: In the May 2006 issue of Sensors Magazine, David Culler noted: "TinyOS has been adopted by thousands of developers world-wide, on many platforms, for a broad range of wireless sensor networks. Its communicaton-centric design and module software model are tailored to the unique requirements of these networks...". This is one of two primary web-sites for the TinyOS open source network (The other is at SourceForge.net). Everything you need to get started with this OS is present.
