If you're looking for a text editor, I use KWrite for GUI and vi for CLI.
If you have a file with a .java extension these 2 will even to sytax highlighting.
If you're in the market for an IDE, try netbeans.

A poll was taken here for the best IDE.

I think the consensus is that Eclipse is best for Java and KDevelop is best for C++.
