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.

Used to use Gedit. Switched to vim this year when I started managing a small server setup. Hated it at first but now I can not believe I never switched to it earlier. It is the best basic text editor I have ever used.
Have ye tried Kwrite? It has got auto word completion feature too,
No I haven't I use GNOME and LXDE and I like the keep KDE software to a minimum. A lot of KDE software is really buggy.
I have tried other text editors and some of them like Leafpad are good, but I always end up using Gedit.
gedit. There is nothing shameful about using a graphical editor.
No Linux user worth their salt would us gedit over vim. I love all these guys who crutch their knowledge on gedit and then when something breaks, they have no idea how to use vi or vim to repair the system. See this all the time...
Funny thing for me is that I can use vim (minimally), but the old standard vi just seems so much more cumbersome. Maybe it's the version of it I was using (it was on FreeBSD), but everything just seemed to be more of a pain; in vim switching to edit mode with "i" or "I" allows me to use it more or less like any other text editor (CLI or GUI), but vi is a lot more picky...
I know I already mentioned this earlier in the thread, but nano got my vote. Yeah, so I'm a wimp. But hey, at least I don't need to be running an X server to use it!
