Question linux newbie, schooled software developer

i apologize in advance because i know that this questions has been asked before, but i've already searched through the posts, however i didn't see all the answers to my questions.

i'm a recent CIS grad and know many development languages. i'm a newbie to linux however and have only been using redhat 8 for a little over a month. i'm searching for a variety of IDEs to use under linux so that i can become less and less dependent upon windows for my work. i've tried emacs, but i just don't have the time to learn some of the esoterics of that interface at the moment. i have found kdevelop and anjuta for c++, but i was wondering if anybody could point me to some opensource/GNU IDEs for the following languages as well.

HTML/ASP/PERL (anything similar to HTML-kit?)
PYTHON (i'd like to learn this language)
any other major or legacy languages

and are there any visual environments for linux similar to visual basic? this is where my primary experience is and i know that i won't be able to totally abandon it in industry, but i would like to learn to develop for the linux community as well.

thanks for your help!

the ones I always hear about are bluefish and quanta. Can't tell you if they both cover all the languages you're looking for, but they always come up when this kind of question is posed.

Quanta is definitely my choice... It should come bundled in KDE in RedHat but I'm not sure... I'm a slackhead

Rep: Reputation: 32 should handle all those languages (comes with KDE) does HTML very well
kdevelop (also with KDE) (so ) does C and C++

gambas is a visual basic like thing (haven't used it)
and Kylix is Delphi for Linux, made by borland so you can get it free or spend alot of money on it

jEdit would be my first choice (what am i saying, it's what i use) for programming, Quanta for HTML and web design (since it has a built in previewer)

For Java, Eclipse is definitely worth a look.
