| ||Ask HN: Recommended resources to learn the Linux kernel and OS theory?|

|So recently I did a couple of minor patches on the FreeBSD and NetBSD kernels and played with some linux kernel. It was the first time in a a few years, I've been excited about programming.|
Unfortunately I'm still completely lost. It seems that there's so much to learn and every kernel update breaks whatever you just finished writing. I see terms in unfamiliar with and often find myself googling basic OS concepts.
Are there any recommendations reading materials to get a better grasp on OS theory and / or the Linux / UNIX kernels and programming for them?
