Why would you need a compiler to become an experienced linux user?
(Well, LFS might help you to understand linux and everything on top of
it, but I don't think many people have the time to learn _that_ much
about it.)

I think one should better be an experienced user (not the same as e.g.
an experienced admin!) _before_ using a compiler...
