Thinking of Switching...

I'm a programmer who uses win/pc but a while back I bought an iPod and now I want an iBook!

Can anyone reccomend:
- A nice simple HTML editor/text editor
- A Freeware Java IDE
- A Freeware C/C++ IDE

SubEthaEdit (semiFree)
Eclipse (free)
xCode (free)

All of the above are good, If you look esp. for HTML editing, you might want to checkout BBEdit (although it's way overpriced imo).

SubEthaEdit is free for personal use. It only costs money for commercial use. The reason I recommend it for HTML is that it has good syntax highlighting (not just for HTML but a variety of languages as well) as well as live previewing using Webkit, making web design so much easier.

You can even use Mozilla to do your HTML, if you really wanted.
Linkety

Another vote for Xcode, you can get plugins to add to the languages that you can program in I think.

A Text editor, eh? How about, "Text Edit" which comes built in and free? Works fine for me...
