Preface This volume is an instructor’s manual for the Seventh Edition of  Operating- System Concepts , by Abraham Silberschatz, Peter Baer Galvin, and Greg Gagne. It consists of answers to the exercises in the parent text. Although we have tried to produce an instructor’s manual that will aid all of the users of our book as much as possible, there can always be im- provements (improved answers, additional questions, sample test questions, programming projects, alternative orders of presentation of the material, addi- tional references, and so on). We invite you to help us in improving this manual. If you have better solutions to the exercises or other items which would be of use with  Operating-System Concepts , we invite you to send them to us for con- sideration in later editions of this manual. All contributions will, of course, be properly credited to their contributor. Internet electronic mail should be addressed to os-book@cs.yale.edu. Physical mail may be sent to Avi Silberschatz, Department nof Computer Sci- ence, Yale University 51 Prospect Street, New Haven, CT 06520, USA. A. S. P.B .G G. G. iii

1 CHAPTER Introduction Chapter 1 introduces the general topic of operating systems and a handful of important concepts (multiprogramming, time sharing, distributed system, and so on). The purpose is to show  why  operating systems are what they are by showing  how  they developed. In operating systems, as in much of computer science,weareledtothepresentbythepathswetookinthepast,andwecan better understand both the present and the future by understanding the past.
