6UoC from 2003   (Posted by Gernot, Tue 24 Dec)
The next offering of Advanced Operating Systems, S2 2003, will have a weight of 6UoC rather than the 12UoC it had in the past. This should help to overcome problems fitting it into the packed CE/SE time table. The project component will be overhauled as appropriate.

I have put up a sample solution for the exam.
