I downloaded the .pdf version of "Thinking in C++" and I've begun to read that and I did yum groupinstall 'Development Tools' I'm a Newbie Desktop user, jumping into the deep end of the pool. Should I try to learn vi (Vim) (which obviously will help me, if I ever need to administer a remote box) or install Emacs or something else, for the gcc editor? An easy learning curve is strongly preferred, but, I am 100% aware of the advantages of vi. Recommendations? TIA!
