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 wanted to edit some .srt subtitles and found best "text editor" was AbiWord!! I don't normally think of it because Word Processors usually add extra characters but AbiWord was the best tool for the job. gedit's spell-checking was a bit to limited, i couldn't add to it's dictionary. Leafpad & Mousepad didn't seem to have option for spelling checks so my usual favourite gave way to AbiWord
I like gedit, but it has some stupid bugs, at least under Windows, e.g. you cannot double-click-select words with numbers in it, such as abc123de4 - it'll only select the numbers or the letters, but not the entire "word". Probably not a problem for most, but I encounter that a lot.
What?!?!!? I thought that was a 'feature'. It's very handy sometimes. If i needed to select words with numbers in without dropping the numbers off the end then i would use a different text-editor and then go back to gedit later
I feel i should try all the different choices before i vote, especially emacs and another go with vi/vim. I really liked the colour coding in SciTe but rarely edit html these days and don't do coding either. I wish i had known of it back in the day.
Although I've voted for "gedit" simply because I use Gnome, I still use 'emacs' for a lot of my heavy duty stuff like coding, scripting, HTML editing because this is the editor I started using from way back. Whenever I need to do one of those jobs I just seem to go into auto pilot and bring up 'emacs' - regular text writing while in a GUI defaults to 'gedit'.
because, kwrite automatic detects format of the file and helps us by colors.
i.e. it will shows different color for comments, variables, expressions... etc.
the user friendly is the best, so i vote for the kwrite. and i recommend it for all the people.
