Inside the Erlang VM, many of the same concepts are duplicated from the underlying operating system upon which it runs, with both serious advantages and disadvantages in various areas. As a first year Erlang developer coming from a systems background, I see that the learning curve for those both coming into Erlang, and trying to learn more outside of Erlang could greatly be helped by high level review and analysis of this prospective. Some topics include: security and the process model, libraries, versioning, and shared memory; message passing and system calls; and virtualized / containerized processing.
