I am a java developer and I want to be more proficient with Linux and know it at the same level as system admin do.
How can I learn it?
I know shell and some basic commands... but I got stuck here and don't move forward with my knowledge..
So.. what should I do?
I was thinking of installing Linux on my home laptop... or maybe to take some training?

Installing Linux on your own computer is a good idea, ofcourse - you'll learn a lot by just using it and playing with it.

If you don't want to replace your current operating system on your laptop completely, you could try running it in a virtual machine, for example using VirtualBox. I'd recommend Ubuntu, it's the most popular Linux distribution, it's quite user-friendly, and has a large and active user community - see ubuntuforums.org.

You could have dual boot (or triple boot) if you have any other OS already. You might consider Fedora also, very much feature rich too...

Ubuntu will be a good option..and for improving your knowledge on that, you shall go for advanced shell scripts,etc..
