With your hardware (particularly the limited RAM) you really want to use Xfce as your window manager simply because it's not bloated and doesn't eat resources like a starved wolf pack with a fresh kill and is a clean, efficient interface with a nice look and feel.

Go get a couple of RAM sticks (they really are dirt cheap nowadays) and bring that box up to 8G or so and you'll be a lot happier with the result.

Hope this helps some.

If you like windows, you're new to linux, and your x86 box is old-ish.

Lubuntu.

notepadqq

gimp and/or Krita

Honestly, searching the software center and synaptic should locate all the software you will need. (except notepadqq, which I think you have to download from the website.)

LXDE will likely be better for him since it's even faster/lighter than xfce and plus it resembles windows 7 a lot more.

Out of curiosity - why just an editor for the frontend? Have you tried Bluefish?
Also, for a dynamic site - is it possible to code the frontend AND have LAMP running on it, and code PHP/MySQL on the same machine??
Oops, not being clear - can I code AJAX with a setup like this?

Of course it's possible, yes you can. It's actually a nice setup to do all web based things
And easy to add virtualhost sites, without heavy dns config, just add names in /etc/hosts
