...wat.
It would be a lot easier for everyone to read if you went back and made sense of your words. Anyway.
Don't think you need to install every OS on your hard drive. You can also use something like virtualbox or VMware to help you with that. Anyway, good practice for learning a linux distro would be to just go out and mess with it. Install some packages. Uninstall some packages. Build some from source. "Make install" some drivers. Install a webserver. Watch porn. Whatever. That's what helped me out.
For those about to hack, I salute you.

If you want a good legitimate pentesting OS, look at backtrack. It's designed to be a LiveCD.
Anyway, sudo comes by default in many OS's. What it does, if correctly authenticated, it gives you temporary root access to complete your commands. It's good for things that require root, and that way you're not completely logged in as root. That's a no-no. But like i said, you should really look into having some projects. Without projects, you really have no need for the terminal. Even if your project is just installing a simple music app, it can still all be done in the terminal. If you take a look around Google, you'll see Ubuntu has an amazing community. As well as a good repository list. They can always help you out with things that you're just learning or things that you don't fully understand.
