One of the problems I've seen individuals trying to learn Linux from
a feature-rich, point-and-click, distribution is that they tend to
learn the details about that particular distribution, rather than the
operation of the Linux OS itself.
Personally, I prefer distributions such as Slackware, that install
the components necessary to build a complete Linux system, and then
get out of the way! :-)
Yes, the learning curve can be steep in the beginning, but at least
you're not being sheltered from what's really going on in the system.
In that way, you might have a much better understanding of its
operation, and can later apply that knowledge toward doing some
really neat things.
