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.

Well, it really depends on what do you exactly want to do.
For coding, most people (overall these that cares about the standards and validity of the html code) use an advanced text editor of any kind. That's what I recommend. There are literally hundreds of them, some random ones are: emacs, vim, kate, joe, elvis, bluefish, geany... Quanta is said to be more geared towards html editing, however I never liked it for some reason, just personal preference I guess.
For graphics, there are lots of tools that you can use. For bitmap editing and photo retouching, the standard seems to be the gimp. There's also krita and a few others probably.
Inkscape is pretty good at vector art.
For 3d, blender is the absolute winner.
I am not much into commercial programs, I am not a professional (not even amateur I'd say) graphist. But I know there are some around. I haven't tested them and I don't remember them right now. Some windows tools will also work under wine, however if you are into dreamweaber, I'd better recommend to just run windows.
