If you really want to appreciate the concepts, you should find a unix
manual from the days before X was included.   Back then there were 5
sections where 1 covered the command line programs, 2 covered system
calls, 3 the standard C library, etc.   It was small enough that you
could read and mostly memorize it, especially section 1, in a few
days.  The thing to appreciate is that 30+ years later, even in cloned
versions, those things were designed well enough that pretty much
everything in there still continues to work.
