I prefer Arch Linux over Gentoo as it is a bit simpler and Gentoo is not worth all that work!

I had spent a lot of time playing around with distros like Ubuntu and even spent some time with Opensuse. Personally, I found that I started to learn a lot when I was working with Linux for a purpose, for example working with a distro like Backtrack or trying to setup something like Asterisk. The process of working with tools, most of which are completely operate from the terminal, helped me break the dependency of GUI that I had acquired in Windows; not to say Windows doesn't have none GUI elements.
The cool thing about Linux is the amount of great "free" stuff available. Google something that you'd like to do with a PC and chances are you'll find a Linux solution that works as good or better than what you're used to in Windows. There's more of an incentive when you get a new toy out of the deal rather than just passing a test. Training and certifications are important but don't postpone your enjoyment.

I think that Gentoo is too extensive even for someone learning for the first time, even if they had the documentation in front of them the whole time.. I remember I did the Gentoo install and while I was inclined to finish (I never did get to finish, except when I took a little CS camp at Stevens), I was really just typing what I saw and not taking in any of it.
I think that the best way to learn 'Linux' would just to use it. Did you learn how to use Windows or OSX by taking a course on it? I think you probably learned it over time. I would suggest doing this with something like Ubuntu and then testing different distributions. I remember starting using Ubuntu and liking everything being super complicated and battery-harsh, looking sweet... then ending up liking really small window managers and not even using a desktop environment because I loved the simplicity and feeling like I was only using command line.
Now I forgot everything.

is there a good place online (class--not books) to learn linux? the more and more i use it, i see how much more you can do w/it compared to Windows. i've checked both local community colleges and they do not offer anything for Linux. even checked Illinois State University, nothing. any help would be appreciated. thank you.
