If you missed this discussion on "why sucks", I strongly recommend it. They talk about:

* how hard it is to ship for Linux

@frostygoth not specific to RHEL, but I have been reading the book The Linux Programming Interface and it really helped me to understand Linux more in depth. It might be worth a look. It's quite huge but you can read the chapters out of order as needed.
