end user looking to expand his knowledge base


I am experienced with linux as an end user on the desktop and laptop platforms.
I want to explore linux more thoroughly because with in 6 months I want to use it as my primary OS.
I also have an idea for a business project that could very well use linux in an embedded form which brings me to my next question
Where would I place the post posing such a question so that it gets into the right hands and minds to possibly help me
I just want to make sure I do not post in the wrong area
My idea is involving an embedded OS device to monitor web traffic from a DSL or cable jack in a home
Something like a hacked router or switch might work for R and D
let me know what you think
I shall check back frequently
