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.

well, i feel stupid voting vi/vim every year, but when you learn an app, it's hard to switch. especially when you find yourself using it over and over again because it seems to always "just be there" with new linux installs etc.
Personally, for a quick edit through the CLI, I use nano. Nano is simple, clean, and is reminds me of the old days with pine..which I grew to love despite missing elm.
However, GUI editors are a whole separate issue - personally, I like using kate, but since I really don't do a lot of programming, I'm sure I have gotten used to it not for its superiority, but for the fact that it is already installed on my distro (mdv 2006).
emacs...well, in the old days I was on the emacs side of emacs/vi. I used to think, if you're going to use vi, why not just use "ed". Since I don't program for a living, but mostly just fiddle with my config files, I trend towards the more basic editors like nano...Wasn't pico the original editor for pine?
