Text editors for Linux scripting
Here is a question that has been asked many times. Yet, the landscape is ever changing, so maybe there is something "fresh" I should look at.
I recently went 100% Linux (CentOS) after many years of doing my web dev on XP. My holdup was Photoshop, but I've learned to *accept but not like* Gimp.
I do PHP, Python, and a little C++.
For me, Eclipse is overkill.
What I had been using is Notepad++, which I like a great deal.
What I need is something similar for Linux.
I know, I know, "real" programmers use vi or vim or emacs... I'm not a real programmer, I build web apps.
What do people here like?
Subscript: As to why CentOS - it's what my two servers run, and I like to have my development environment somewhat similar to my "production" machines.

"Real" programmers use whatever they are comfortable with that helps them get the job done effectively.

Have you thought about giving "Sublime Text 2" a try? (you'll need to Google it, being a new users here I can't post links...)
I've used it for quite some time after migrating from Notepad++ and love it!
It's cross platform, and in most cases (such as myself, I use Linux Mint) there is a PPA available so you can add the repo and just apt-get install it.

gedit, anjuta, SciTE ...
The last two will also allow you to run your code from inside your editor .
