by Mark Burgess
Number of pages: 140
These are the lecture notes of Operating Systems, courtesy of Mark Burgess, a full professor at the Faculty of Engineering of University College Oslo, Norway. The notes cover most of the basic topics of operating systems, many which have only been covered superficially.
