Notes Review:

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. As with other lecture notes, these are relatively short (168 pages) for a subject traditionally covered in thick volumes.

The notes cover most of the basic topics of operating systems. Readers will find these lecture notes as a decent introduction material that should give them a good grasp on the subject of operating systems.

Topics covered include:
- key concepts, resources and sharing, resource management and spooling
- single task
- multi tasking and multi user
- processes and threads
- memory and storages, physical and virtual
- networks, services and protocols
- security, super users, firewall
