Mandrake and loving it!

Well, just to start off i am new to the forum and Linux as well. I have been using the posts from this forum to get me through the install and setup of Linux since i'm such a noob at this. I have recently installed Mandrake 10.1 and i am very pleased with it. I intend to stick with linux from here on out and leave Micro$oft behind. I have managed to install a few .rpm's with minimal pain and suffering and i am happy with my new setup. There are a few things that i would like to do however. (1) I own an HP iPAQ hx4700 that uses pocket pc 2003 and it would be great if i could sync with linux. I would find something else compatible if my iPAQ wasn't so expensive. (2) I also have a couple websites that i designed and i would like to find something easy to use for a moron like me. Aside from those things i couldn't be happier with Linux. Thanks for all the support you guys have provided to me and all the other noobs out there like me.

For web development, you can use quanta plus, bluefish, nvu or a simple text editor (if you wish to do it the hard way ) like emacs, vi/m, kwrite etc.

For web pages writing, I settled for Kate. I previously tried Screem, and mostly Bluefish, which are a *little* more newbie-oriented.
If what you want is a WYSIWYG-like editor (bad choice IMHO), then Amaya seems the most "standards-friendly", and nvu seems to gather the most votes. It's up to you.
