what are other good ways to learn linux?

I found this site and thought it might be good for learning but I feel like I already know most of this stuff:

http://linuxsurvival.com/wp/?page_id=11&id=5

I think that's a basics refresher. But I really want to learn how linux works and then how windows works. I decided to start with linux. I want to learn hands on material that will actually force me to understand how it works. I'm still installing gentoo and I have a Linux Command Line book but I want to be able to actually understand and retain the information. What is the best way to learn about Linux? Also could someone recommend good websites for hands on learning? I think I'm probably going to start with Ubuntu. I really want to learn as much as possible about how linux works.

I think I'm just a kali basics kind of person. I can move files and folders around and change their permissions, run crunch, metasploit, reaver, wash, aircrack-ng, and some other stuff. It's been a steep learning curve coming from Windows. I've really enjoyed using Kali and if Microsoft died tomorrow it wouldn't phase me to use Linux at all.

I follow this guy on Youtube. I watch a lot of his videos as they are straight forward, however, the beauty of Youtube is all the related content so you get to see stuff that you might not have known Linux could do just by seeing related content.

I've been told to stay away from kali and pen testing and hacking until I can learn more about computers and technology and how it works.

I've been in IT for 9 years. A small amount of time in comparison to others. You can't learn everything. I have support contracts for mostly everything now because it just keeps growing. Pick a subject you really enjoy and learn the crap out of that one. No point in being a jack of all trades when you can be a master of one. Plus you'll go mad trying to learn everything.

My friend said I needed to know the basics of a few different things before I got back to penetration testing. He said if I didn't I'd basically be a script kiddie. Do you not agree with him?

Yes i do, i mean if you wanna use daws to hack things without knowing how it works then it means that you're a script kiddie...

So what are some good prerequisites besides Linux? I have another thread about this:

viewtopic.php?f=37&t=13195

Anyone who wants to answer it, I feel like it should be in a separate thread from specifically linux. I just want some general areas that I can learn that will help me get to the point where I can hack without being a script kiddie, and if possible, get to the point where I know what I'm doing. Someone said learn linux first at my school.

@Defte,

So how do I know that I know enough Linux to focus on another area for the goal of being able to know what I'm doing learning hacking?
