A Question for all Linux Gurus
How did you become a Linux Guru?

"Learning by doing" and reading are the guides to that step!

Scan through the manpages to get an idea of the commands available and what they can do. -mk

When does someone consider him/her/itself to be a guru?

jamaso 10-17-2002 08:15 AM

They just simply don't . In my opinion to be a guru is prety much being a genius or someone really clever on computers , you should not think that way of yourself .
It's like being in a coma , you just can't tell .

"Guru" is an opinion and is best when not self-inflicted :) .

The lower the number you have as registered Linux user at the greater guru you
Just kidding, just kidding...:)

I vote your a guru by passing or when you ace all the LQ quizzes without any help.. :D

I learned everything I know (which isn't much ;) ) by spending all my time here :D

Not that I am a guru, not even close by any means of the word as far as Linux goes, but that's how I know anything at all.

IMHO there are no "Guru's" because just as in life there's always someone bigger down the road to knock you down a notch or two, and just when you think you know it all you find that you don't.

You're a "Guru" when people think you are. I don't think I'm a guru, but people say I am. I think it's because when you get deeper and depper you know really much, but in the same time you know the things you don't know. And so it goes...

I like the word "guru".
It's one of those words like "groovy" and "radical" - if you say these and mean it, people will think you belong in a commune.

The only way to say "guru" and maintain a sheen on respectability is to pronounce it "Gerooh".

It's not so much being a guru as it is feeling comfortable with UNIX/Linux and can put out most fires without help. The faster you can put out the fire, the closer you get to that lofty goal. -mk
