I use RedHat Linux 8.0 every day and test websites on a Windows machine 
that is semi-networked with this box.

I prefer Bluefish (http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/) while others are fond 
of Quanta (http://quanta.sourceforge.net/) for a gui html editor. I've 
been told *real* *nix users only use VI.

Graphics is pretty much the Gimp and they're working on better manuals 
and quick-tips. I don't really do much in graphics though.
