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.

Distribution: Fedora (workstations), CentOS (servers), Arch, Mint, Ubuntu, and a few more.
Vim is the good old way. But with Java my preference (high) is give to NetBeans. For C/C++ Anjuta was ok for my limits. I found KDevelop little bit KDE/QT oriented. Why havent I seen anything like Bloodshed Dev C++ on Linux (It uses GCC!)?
For an IDE that non programmers can use, the choice has got to be Runtime Revolution. This is a cross platform IDE that creates freely distributable runtimes. Coupled with the the Linux shell, it can be used to create GUI applications in an easy end user scripting method. See my articles on learning basic shell scripting coupled with this wonderful product, and you will become a power user able to turn Linux into your own super productive system.
voting for eclipse...
made the switch this year from netbeans for java development.
I guess you did the switch too early. Because NetBeans 5.0 is literary eclipsing Eclipse and all other IDEs. Painless desktop Java, JEE, JME and lots of other stuff out of the box and it's free (both as in free speech and free beer).
