So you want to get our book?
OK, I already bragged that our book on Operating Systems is finally printed and has, thus, been formally published.
What I had not yet mentioned is how we planned its physical distribution. Yes, it is available for sale at some UNAM libraries… But coming to UNAM is sadly an option only for people who are in Mexico City.
I have been quite busy, and was unable to come up with anything earlier, but I have finally finished setting up a decent although minimal web page for the book. In it, I mention the possible ways you can get your own printed copy of Fundamentos de sistemas operativos:
- If you are in Mexico, the advised way is to call or mail the library at Instituto de Investigaciones Económicas — (+52-55)5623-0080 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
They will ship the book (they would ship it overseas, but it'd be too expensive!) and are able to process electronic payment opetions.
The book printed at UNAM has substantive part of its pages printed in color, and let me tell you... It's worth it.
- If you are not in Mexico or you prefer not to deal with a human, you can buy the book from the on-demand printing service lulu.com.
For cost reasons, it is printed in black and white, but it is the same content (minus two typos ;-) ). Lulu.com is an international company, so they will get it shipped to you cheaper and faster — And I have requested the book to be made available to libraries such as Amazon and Barnes and Noble (and was told it should take a couple of weeks to have it ready there).
(and please report me any bugs you see!)

It’s already in major online libraries, yay!
I didn’t know Lulu.com had already made it available there — But yes, it’s part of what I requested.
