You "don't know what you don't know", and are in error about most of what
you think you _do_ know.

You would be well advised to read a number of the 'classical' reference
books about Unix:

   "The Design of the Unix Operating System"
   "The Design of the BSD 4.4 Operating System"
   "Unix System Administration Handbook"

are a good set to start with.
