Older, yes, but in my case I surely will not make any false claim as
to being more skilled.

I've only been using Linux (RHL9 first and now FC1 on one box, soon to
install SuSe on another too) for about one year, computers in general
for about ten years, but I am 50 and working on some certifications
now. Lord knows why I didn't get into computers sooner.....

Someone else mentioned "assembly".... Steve Gibson of Gibson Research
swears by Assembly Language and I hope to find time to learn much more
about it soon. If anyone can recommend some good sources of learning
materials, I would be most grateful.
