hey i was curious about writing code for linux. ive dabbled with visual basic and c++ and just like messing around. nothing serious, but it would be cool to me to use a calculator that i coded or something like that. i saw in another post that kate is a good program. would this be what i need, or any others to advise? thanks.

If you want a pretty IDE,
sudo apt-get install eclipse
if you want old school stuff that I still go back to from time to time. It is what I used 5 years ago in college (might have had something to do with running a very slow computer as well).

If you want to design GUIs, try "sudo apt-get install glade". This lets you make interfaces for GNOME, and then export them and code them in the language of your choice.
Good, simple text editors are:
Gedit- Gnome, try installing the plugins or extras from synaptic
Leafpad- Really simple
Nano- Good commandline
Vim- same as above
Emacs- same as above
Of course, you can use any text program for coding.
