This question has popped up in many open forum sites if you do a search term, but I think most of them are either talking about the remote explorer functionality or the design view.
However this is how I use a glorified text editor (Dreamweaver) in Windows and I was wondering if there is such functionality present in Linux. I use the site manager to keep a local copy of my PHP files, and on save they are uploaded to the remote server. It also keeps an eye out for all my changes, which i can commit when I decide im done with my process, Sort of like Eclipse.
Now there are IDEs or other software that do one or the other, however none that I found that perform both the tasks easily as one entity.
The question is, has anyone got comfortable using Linux as a prime PHP development platform to develop for remote servers.
