I agree, read all you can and apply it wherever you can. Guys (and
girls;-)) starting out with Linux and Open Source need to
persevere(spellme) - find a means to an end - be a winblows
click-and-drool monkey if you have to be, Linux jobs will come...most
jobs aren't advertised though, so start networking!

While you wait, try to get Linux into your company/office - something
like phpgroupware on an abandonned P1 might break the ice, did for me.

If you have spare cash go for it!
If not consider investing into a few good linux books. Read them from
cover to cover and try all the stuff out. I am sure the list can
some worthwhile books :0)
Also make a point of reading through the HOTOs in the Linux
documentation project, some of them are a bit outdated but there is a
wealth of knowledge. Whatever you do not understand I am sure the list
should be able to answer. What you need to understand is concepts and
not how it is done on-this-distro (TM)

Work does not fall out of the sky and your biggest pain will be
