    For IDEs:
    there are tons of them... KDevelop, codeBlocks, Anjuta, Eclipse (see the stickies for this)

    For straight text in a windowing environment:
    Textedit is good
    Emacs if you are willing to learn to use it

    For console text editor:
    Emacs is the best in my opinion
    Nano is simpler to learn
    some people like vi, but I've never taken the time to learn it

    I like Gedit (the default one). It's has many great features for programming, not to mention plugins to fill in the rest.

    Try geany. You won't be disappointed. Here's a quick post I wrote about it on my blog. It includes the feature list.

    I use Mousepad, which comes with Xubuntu. It's nice and simple, but maybe you're looking for something with more functions.

    I am "some people", I like Vim (Vi Improved).

    @op, there is no best editor, find one you like. Browser the stickies and experiment.

    I do love gedit for some python coding - very basic, I'm learning this programming language.

    The simplest thing to do : install the main tools, test them, and keep the one you fell in love with.
