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.

A year ago I wondered how anyone could think that it was an effective text editor... then I learned how to use it. Though I think there is much that it can do that I don't actually utilize (my vimrc is still pretty skimpy).
Vim is ALWAYS going to blow away the competition in this catagory. I use nano due to it's simplicity. I have yet to see where nano has not done what I have needed. Noted someone saying that they use nano but will use Vim when nano is not available. I have never seen nano NOT available. I have a laundrey list of things I want to learn in Linux and Vim is on the list. Just have not made my way down the list to it yet.

No mod, Just like a plain text editor as I'm heavily dependent on mouse these days for longer codes, honestly. Though I keep the in built terminal for compiling and running the programs.
I see in their documentation that their are some minor incompatibilities. I would also love to hear somebody's experiences with the same.
Splitting KWrite and Kate up is a shame as they are actually the exact same code base, simply one with the simplified UI and the other with all the bells and whistles. Basically having them split like this means the same project team working on the same codebase are in there twice Having a single "Kate / KWrite" entry would be great.
