This week I heard "Windows is a great way to unlearn IT".
This is not the first time I've heard this, and since I've got some spare time (I'm a complete failure at life), I'd like to know how you guys would do. What would you consider a good way to start over. I'm not a complete beginner, but I feel like I still need to take the red pill (even though I officially have a technical university diploma, which I - long story short - think did not help me much because it was too easy to get it without studying.
Anyway, I'm thinking back to basics.
What OS would you recommend (I've heard Slackware, Gentoo, FreeBSD, Fedora...) ?
How do I learn to use it properly ? (i.e going further than installing a text editor.)
Your favorite language ? (Tried multiple but feel like I failed hard every time, so I'm starting over one more time...)
Any tips, any idea would be appreciated, feel free to contribute. It's a vast subject.

So, /g/, I'm setting up a home server for myself. It's going to serve files over the network, run XBMC, store backups, download torrents, as well as function as a web server for my personal domain.
Tell me why I shouldn't run Arch on it?
