Is it a good idea to learn Selenium RC alongside Webdriver
I have recently started exploring
Selenium. According to the experts future lies in Selenium
Webdriver. But my question is being a predecessor should I also learn
Selenium RC? Will it be worth investing the
time? Does it help me to grasp the
architectureof Selenium more efficiently?
I already know that each have got some
advantages/disadvantagesagainst the other but still I would like to know this in detail. Thanks!

These days, I'd say Selenium RC is not worth learning unless you have a specific need for it--for example, to work with legacy test code that uses it.
I don't think it will give you a significantly better appreciation of the Selenium architecture. You can get that by exploring the Selenium code base if you have an interest.
If you the know WebDriver API reasonably well, and you know how to use it to automate stuff, then you will be able to learn Selenium RC quickly if the need arises.
