Operating Systems: Principles and Practice, Second Edition


Instructor solution sets

We have posted solution sets to the exercises in the 2nd edition on the instructor portion of the website. Registration and login is now required to access that portion of the website; please follow the instructions on the instructor page to obtain permissions.

Kindle edition is up!

We are happy to announce that OSPP, 2nd edition is now available in ebook format via the Kindle app for tablets and smartphones.
The ebook edition is split into four volumes due to Amazon’s pricing structure for small publishers, and as a result it does NOT appear linked to the Amazon page for the textbook. Instead, follow the links on the “Purchase book” page. The ebook is formatted to be readable on smartphones as well as tablets. On small devices, use landscape mode for tables, code, and equations, and double tap on figures.

Welcome to OS:PP 2nd Edition!

Welcome to our new website for Operating Systems: Principles and Practice, second edition, by Tom Anderson and Mike Dahlin. We have put together in one convenient location: how to request a desk copy, an up to date version of the slides, selected chapter excerpts, pdf’s for every figure in the textbook, and code examples.

We plan to continue to improve the site as we create new material to support instructors using the book, so watch this space for updates.
