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 honestly don't use IDE's all too much anymore. I started out using them but I've found myself sort of decomposing into doing everything manually via terminal (which are exactly what IDE's are designed to keep you from doing). I just don't like the meta cruft that gets added to your directories by using IDE's.
However I voted for Eclipse simply because of it's versatility and the fact that it's the second IDE I've ever used. The first was MSVS 6 where I was rocking the tried-and-true Visual Basic 6. Now, I just feel dirty writing anything in Basic.
Geany is looking like a nice balance 'twixt usability, footprint, etc. The one I typically use, however, would be Bluefish. But that is only because I have been on Gnome DE since converting to OpenSolaris (yeah, but it was sweet while it lasted). I've been using Emacs more and more though so Bluefish is already beginning to fade into the distance....
