Lisp is great.. but I didn't learn any memory management concepts from it. Neither is it typically used to do hardware level tasks.

Come on, let's not get carried away here.

Lisp uses a garbage collector. It is also used at the hardware level instead of the operating system.

yes.. I know that.. but when I want to learn about manual memory management, low level driver development and things of that nature.. Lisp is of little use.

Lisp is for learning about higher level constructs.
