I am fully willing to admit I'm a noob at Ubuntu. I can only do the most basic of tasks and I rely on the help of others often. I want to become much better and more knowledgeable at both the everyday use and the diagnosis of others' problems. How would I go about doing this?

I too would be interested in the others views on this. A colleague sent me this link which may help, although I get a feeling you were asking about free ways to improve knowledge?

I've always been of the opinion that with usage your knowledge grows. Set yourself a task and use these forums and other resources to teach yourself how to complete that task.

Start reading the forums a lot (especially the absolute beginners forum).

Take a cli guide:

Read linux related websites

(like my blog, hihi, google is your friend).

The best way to learn in my opinion is to keep using Ubuntu on a regular basis and also experiment. Go through the docs at http://help.ubuntu.com and http://www.help.ubuntu.com/community and try out some of the things mentioned there. Also help out with the questions that you can on the forum and research other peoples problems that maybe of interest to you.

Read in the forum as much as you can. the more you can read the more experience you gain.
visit more links related to linux.
Google the net searching for answers to your questions.

You did the second step in becoming proficient with Ubuntu (Linux in general) by joining this forum. The very first is installing Ubuntu in your system.

I want to become much better and more knowledgeable at both the everyday use and the diagnosis of others' problems. How would I go about doing this?Pretty much the same way that one becomes proficient at anything -- study and practice. ;)
