I believe I know several people who use emacs for flossing, though not 
for brushing.

You may want to be brave and consider the vim editor (even better, its 
gvim incarnation).  It comes with some awareness of TeX documents, and 
seems to have much more including the facility to create skeletal 
representations of the file (which personally I did not find useful, so I 
am vague about the details).

viz   http://vim-latex.sourceforge.net/

: I am in the middle of an at least partial transfer of my activities 
: from Windows to Linux.  When working with LaTex on Windows I have used 
: both WinEdt and TexNicCenter.  What I like most with those is that you 
: have a tree structure of the document on the left side of the screen 
: and the ability to build a complete docukment in pdf format.  I know 
: that the real Linux enthusiasts use vi or emacs for anything but 
: brushing teeth, but I do not feel I am ready for that, at least not yet.
: So:  Are there any Linux editing tools oriented towards LaTex with 
: similar functionality like the ones mentioned above, including 
: building complete documents to pdf, including indexing, biliographies 
: etc.?
