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.

Distribution: Ubuntu "Hoary" - The best distro around by a long shot.
I always use nedit or vim. Neither is specific to any programming language, but they both have syntax highlighting. Nedit's syntax highlighting is quite thorough, so if a line doesn't get highlighted in the manner I would expect, I know I've made a mistake
Originally posted by ICO Hi, I use vim sometimes. I just don't know how you guys can switch between 10 opening files in vim.
Whew, I can barely keep my head on straight when I'm working on two source files at once, let alone 10. But there are features for doing it in Vim - you can put other open files in the background, so to speak, and switch between them. Not a feature I use though. I try to program one file at a time

It is not efficient, is it? You have to quick and vim filename, and sometimes the file is in another directory. Why not try some IDE though?
