You should change 'SVN' to 'Version Control' and list some other VCS systems, like Git and Mercurial and they're respective plugins.  You should also consider adding some Linux applications, or cross platform applications and some IDE's that support PHP.

Since right now SMF uses SVN other types of version control systems were not provided by the team. Also no one on the team provided any linux/mac based apps they use. But others are more then welcome to create their own list to add in this thread.

AFAIK GNOME includes gedit.

- Bluefish editor (http://bluefish.openoffice.nl/index.html)

@flapjack: No, windows with its integrated crap... At least Linux gives you the ability to remove the default browser :P

Just give me Linux, I'm better off with that then Microsoft windows (except when mom blames me that she doesn't know how to use it when I didn't switch our laptop back to windows :P)

don't get me wrong, but if you managed to install linux, you're most likely to find tools you need yourself, as linux users tends to be more pro- like

@flapjack: I know how to control my pc, don't be afraid of that :P

I have seen quite a few programs that I needed to google for, yes (either they were not available for 64-bit which I use or I simply could not find them). but hey, windows is worser with that.

Really, I am finer with Linux then with Windows...

(isn't this getting a bit off-topic?)

XAMPP is great as a localhost webserver, and you'd include alternatives for Mac and Linux. Not everybody use Windows. In my case (Mac) I use SmartSVN for SVN, Coda as my code editor and Filezilla (already listed) as my FTP Client.

Tried XAMPP ages ago. Vertrigo is better IMHO. ;)

That's the one catch with Vertrigo: it's Windows-only. However it is stable, has good functionality, and it is a complete no-brainer to set up. Since I have Windows that's good enough for me. :)

We probably should add XAMPP to the list though. Different people have dfferent preferences.

(I used it before I found Vertrigo and it is pretty good)
