Certainly all systems have undocumented stuff that are left undocumented because the users are not supposed to use it. If they would, they couldn't change it.

Not everything by a long shot, plenty more to re-discover like VMS,IBM i and Z, Unisys ClearPath, mbed,...

Just keep an open mind and don't idolatrize UNIX, yes it has a couple of good ideas, but they don't make it the be all end all of OS design.

If you really want to know about these things you should get a copy of [Windows Internals](https://www.amazon.com/Windows-Internals-Part-architecture-management/dp/0735684189/ref=dp_ob_title_bk) - doesn't have to be the latest edition. This is for Windows, obviously - I assume there are similar references for Linux (though I don't have any specifics).

The series of books known as "Windows System Internals"[0]

Raymond Chen of "Old New Thing" fame and all his friends[1]

The creator of process monitor occasionally writes nice blog posts about troubleshooting[2]

A lot of historical NT stuff is still valid, or at least mildly relevant today.
