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'm tinkering around with Qt4 now, and may need to use KDevelop. The GUI design part for Qt4 is fine and intuitive, but that's only the GUI. I tried eclipse a little to see if I could convert a conventionally made project (some c code, yacc and lex, and a Makefile; planning to add C++ code and GUIs) but got lost many times and spend hours searching for explanations. I suppose the same is going to happen with KDevelop. The initial steps to put together a proper design of a development project seems to be always the biggest obstacle, at least for a novice to IDE's as myself. It seems always unclear where all the magic of the IDE and GUI maker machines ends and you finally have to think C or C++.
As I'm mostly into Perl programming I don't need much of an IDE. I do most of my editing with Vim, sometimes with jEdit or gedit. When I feel adventurous enough to try myself on a C or C++ project I use Anjuta. I think that preference stems mostly from the fact that I've known this IDE for quite some time and hence feel comfortable with it as I know my way around.
I still use xwpe or else kate but then I never progressed past turbo-c on w-3.11 before linux and all I ever do is quick and dirty hacks for the heck of it or because I'm too lazy to do something a hack can do. I've always wanted just a plain old ide with out all the bells and whistles. Bells and whistles seem to be the way of the future for Linux aps.
