hi Erik, I'm glad you asked this question...I've always felt like a
sub-par Linux user because I could not program.  I've also noticed
that a lot of programs I've run across in my limited experience with
Linux are written in C.  therefore, learning C could only help my
understanding of my computer.

also, I've noticed that at my local school most of the computer
science majors use C, so I figure that if I learn C, I can at least
understand that course material on some level.
