My take.

The word linux contains too much for any person to become a master at. I used to work at a big computer place where even some of the smartest people on the planet could not "know it all." You can choose to be great at some parts, or good at many. I doubt anyone can be great at all of linux.

One of the things I tend to like about LQ is that generally the forums (in technical areas) tend to be very professional. It is difficult to work in high tech with a less than professional attitude at all times. It took me a long time to calm down and try to be professional.

What you put in is what you get out.

This applies to learning anything.

I suggest that you install a GNU/Linux distribution within a virtual machine and play around with it. Read tutorials on the web. Try different things. Keep at it until you become a "wizard".

Learn/practice all the commands, apps, their documentations, their source codes. Make new softwares, add to existing ones or altogether modify them to new ones.
