ProgrammingThis forum is for all programming questions.
The question does not have to be directly related to Linux and any language is fair game.

not sure exactly what you want. You said that want to do a large C project for Linux. Well, what do you have in mind? e.g. game, application, drivers, improvements, etc.
What does the Linux world need? it depends who you ask.
1) a Norton Ghost like program to clone partitions (there's already a project with this purpose. you could join them)
2) a programming text editor for X (Using Qt/Gtk, f.e.)
3) a Disk manager like app for disk zeroing and other maintenance tasks
4) help the dillo browser development team
Work on system call implementation, its a small thing to start of with, understand filesystems/interprocess communication.
Build up concepts understand things and make a vision.
