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 would choose vim first. Because it makes you look cool. Especially if you are working on other systems that isn't linux like, the Mac OS. While Mac users are using the GUI, you can just use vi or vim in front of them and they will marvel on how your are functioning relying on GUI and a mouse.
I like KWrite because it's the only editor I know that has a datestamp/timestamp function, making it suitable for keeping a journal or anything else where you'd like to note the date and time.
If this were a poll for worst editor, I'd vote for Kate. Kate is an kludge, with an overcomplicated interface and many extra features I have no interest in.
You should stick with Kwrite if you're using KDE, Kwrite is cool. But if you ever come around a GTK+ environment, you should try Geany for that feature. It is under de Edit menu.
EDIT: I just saw in your signature that you hate KDE4, so go for Geany! It comes with a interface a bit similar to Kate by default, but I make it look like KWrite by hiding the sidebar and messages panel under the View menu.
