Slightly OT...

I was strolling through the archives and I noticed that the topic of 
Java and Linux came up a long long time ago.

One IDE that I found really neat is NetBeans ( It does 
some cool stuff like code completion, goes automatically to the javadoc 
of the method you are writing, etc. Also, it has a GUI editor, which 
cuts swing code for you, and has a nice GridBagLayout editor.

I haven't explored NetBeans fully, but it certainly looks real nice.

Its written in pure Java, I think... It'll run really nicely on your 
1GHz Athlon :-)
