Want to develop expertise in Linux

Hello I am new to Linux but have extensive knowledge in Windows and Mac OS.
I have looked at some YouTube videos and also a couple Linux tutorial on Udemy.
I was wondering if there are any good sites to look at for internship or volunteer to develop more experience?

Hi geomalak,

Let me ask you a question: How did you gain extensive knowledge with Windows and Mac OS? A. Likely from using them.

Install Linux, use it as a VM, live boot it. However you approach it, use it and you shall learn.

While I could not agree with rtmistler more, as it's the best way to learn anything.

Have a look at this as well.

rmstitler couldn't have said it better, install it, use it, break it. That's how I learned was from breaking it and fixing it constantly, eventually I started breaking it less and less until i was competent with it.

Hi & welcome. Do you have (access to try) any Linux yet?
(if not, I have a couple of <10 minute ideas Yes, 'jump in'!)

Internship? Lots of ways to contribute, but what aspects of computer use do you enjoy?
IF I gave you a choice of only: bootloader, kernel, 'init services', and shell,
in which order would you choose them?

A bit of friendly *joking*: I had an internship-opening to work on a new TeslaGUI,
but so many WinGUI'ers applied that I now -charge- those interns $500/hr plus
require job application fully explain every .config option in the new TeslaLinux
(which has a future systemd invisibly integrated INTO the kernel as [svchost] thread)

So, I'm hoping to hear you tried DOSish 'CLI' before Linux's IckyGooey windows.
