I second the Kate nomination. I was turned on to it in this very forum some time ago and use it exclusivley now for web site editing (several sites). Only real problem is that the code lives on a Windows2000 server on the floor here, and Kate will not look at it unless I also run SMB4K and mount the server's disks in that.
For miscellaneous text editing (configs etc) I use gedit.
I now run almost everything in Ubuntu - I turned on the Windows machine's screen yesterday to modify an Access DB but first time in several days.
So far I have not really needed a graphics editor. I tried making a couple of small images in Gimp but it was tedious (I've use Windows Corel Photopaint until now). I recenty installed several graphics apps to try out with a view to installing one or more on the new machine I build for my wife. Gimp will not be one of those. :(
