    Yes, it's platform-specific.

    Good books/tutorials will depend on the platform. I work mostly with Linux, and use Google for "high-level" questions (e.g. which type of IPC do I want to use) and use the man pages extensively when I am actually writing IPC code (or almost any code in Linux).

    As for which platform to pick, we can't say. If your school or work uses one in particular, then use that. If not, Linux, MacOS and Windows are all popular platforms, so pick any one. The fundamental concepts are quite similar, which is the important thing to learn.

    Once you start to get the hang of IPC on one platform, consider learning a second platform. Study what is the same and what is different. It will give you some interesting insight to architecture and OS similarities and differences.

    For cross-platform solutions you can use a cross-platform library. This one is popular on Linux but also works on Windows
