It really depends on what you want to do. Would you rather go around
fixing/designing/running networks and computers, or would you rather be
programming or designing software. That is a gigantic generalization, but
if someone goes to the effort to get a bachelors or especially a masters
or Ph D, they probably don't plan to do the same thing that technical
school graduates plan to do. (Not that one is better or worse than the
other - it's up to the individual.)

I don't have any experience out in the field yet, but I do know that it
really depends on what you see yourself doing. What you want to do will
dictate the kind of training you need.

As far as schools go, WSU has a decent computer science department. I
started my school work there, and learned a lot that has helped me as I
continue here at KU.

(I'm not a Linux guru and I'm still working on my masters, but I wanted
to answer anyway..)

Good luck,
