Introduction to Linux - A Hands on Guide
This guide was created as an overview of the Linux Operating System, geared toward new users as an exploration tour and getting started guide, with exercises at the end of each chapter.
For more advanced trainees it can be a desktop reference, and a collection of the base knowledge needed to proceed with system and network administration. This book contains many real life examples derived from the author's experience as a Linux system and network administrator, trainer and consultant. They hope these examples will help you to get a better understanding of the Linux system and that you feel encouraged to try out things on your own.

I like vi... it's one of those editors where, once you begin using it, it's hard to use something else. However, for creating plain-text documents and stuff, I prefer simpler editors like pico. But I still use vi for those too, depending on my mood ;-)
Jedit loads (the first time) as fast as gedit on my fedora core 2 with java 5.0.
It has many great plugins, for xml, for html, for coding, loads big files fast, looks good on java 5, you can use the same jar file to install it on windows.
It will not get many votes, but it is a great tool.
I'm amazed at the number of people using nano/pico, I used it for a long time, but some of my guru friends urged me to try emacs and I quite liked it. There seems to be an invasion of vi and vim supporters on this forum
