Main Question or Discussion Point
I've never used the language before but I would like to start moving away from Windows as a server platform. PHP from what I can tell, and have read on this board, is a good choice for coding on a *nix platform. Can anyone recomend an IDE and any other tools that might come in handy for web development. This whole patent deal with MS has really turned me off to any language (C# is what I use now) that is proprietary to them.
