I've grown up with computers and while I can use them and do some troubleshooting, I think I'd like to know more about how they actually work. I have a basic idea of what the hardware components are, but operating systems are a bit of a mystery to me. I'd like to learn something about computers that won't be obsolete in a few years. I also don't want to follow blogs for the newest and tiniest changes in hardware/software. Is information about computer science what I'm looking for? Which books and/or websites should I check out?
