What does it mean to "know Linux"?

I often see the phrase "know Linux" being used as a job requirement, but what does this actually mean? Being able to write shell scripts, familiarity with shell commands, being able to take a text file formatted a certain way and and manipulate the data it has in whatever way you want, that sort of a thing? Being able to work with very stripped down Linux distros such as ArchLinux as if they were windows? The fact that I'm having to ask this question in the first place probably means that I don't "know Linux", but I'd like to.
