|For a beginner an IDE can be a good thing, I guess (they were not available when I was a beginner). I understand the need to pursue that. Just FYI, I use Linux with an x-window terminal, vim, svn, git, cvs, man, and a browser (documentation: php, jQuery, etc.). It isn't integrated, but it is highly effective. |
I have tried IDEs and other editors. For me, nothing beats vi, actually vim, for power, speed, and cross-environment portability.
