I don't think you are being fair. Unlike Windows, in Linux there are many
many ways to accomplish pretty much the same task.
In this, noone can become an expert on every aspect of doing something,
and this applies to pretty much anything in life.
Just because a person may not be particularly versed in a certain way of
accomplishing a task using a certain tool in Linux does not mean that they
are in any way incompetant.
You may know something that I don't about Linux and probably do, and then
I probably know some things that you don't as well. This doesn't make
either of us idiots, it just means we still have a lot to learn and always
That said, I don't think that there is such a thing as a Linux "expert",
and anyone that claims to be has missed the whole point.
