Have you looked at the kernel source?  Can you make heads or tails of
it?  How long do *you* think it would take, based on your progression
so far?  Some of that stuff (memory management) makes Linus' eyes cross.

As for writing apps, consider looking into wxwindows, FLTK, and Simple
DirectMedia Layer (SDL), libraries which may help.  SDL is at
http://rosettacode.org/wiki/Creating_a_Window I think.  They can all
be found in Debian repositories and google.  I *think* I like SDL the
most from what I've seen, but your goals may/will differ.

Any technology distinguishable from magic is insufficiently advanced.
