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.

View Poll Results: IDE/Web Development Editor of the Year
It'll be interesting to see these results. Besides some other downfalls I see, the single most drawback for any IDE I've seen is that they all lack a decent text editor. It would be nice if you could easily use any text editor you wanted (say, vim for example) in the IDE. I don't mean an emulator, which all fall short of the real deal, but the actual text editor. Is it really that difficult to all drop-in replacements for that?
Only started programming this year learning Python. My IDE of choice is eric (but version 4 for Python 2.6/2.7 and version 5 for Python 3.0). Eric3 isn't even available for download from their site. Maybe update/include eric4 or just leave it at eric?
I usually use vim combined with straight command-line gcc for building, but I use Geany on occasions when I'm running out of VTs or when my work is spread across too many files to make that feasible. Voted Geany
I use Vim with a few scripts... Then if I program on Windows I'll use GPS (for Ada programming) but it's really rare that I do... I might more in the year to come. I voted for Geany as I used it a few times to get an idea and "teach"/help someone (learning) programming basics and liked it, though it's not my first choice.
