I'm gonna be putting Ubuntu on my system soon and the only thing I require is a good IDE to do my development on. I require something that allows me to code in most programming languages and have colour coding. I'm a regular Dreamweaver user and anything on or close to that level would be great for me.
Anything with a built in database manager is optional, as I use databases a lot, but I believe MySQLYog works on Linux, so I'll prob use that as I use it on Windows and really like it.
Another option would be to allow me to save my files directly to my host via FTP, like I can do in Windows, as I find it so much easier than saving a file, then opening the FTP and uploading it via that.
