@ DoYouSpeakWak
This is shareware now http://www.ghisler.com/
I haven't used it in a bit but as for dealing with files and folders on windows machines I don't think you'll find much it can't do. ;)

This topic is still about free tools. Shareware is not free.
Need a mod/extension created/installed, other custom-coded solution or a server admin? https://tumba25.net

My workstation is Mandriva 2010.
- IDE is Eclipse with PDT (PHP support) -> you can navigate classes, it can send you to the definition of a method, etc.
- Eclipse has a subversion client, subversive, so I keep my code on an SVN server on the same machine. I can tag and branch versions, compare the current version with the previous ones, etc.
- I develop locally, sometimes on a virtual server with VirtualBox if I need say to test on a CentOS server.
- I access the remote servers with SSH (cli version) but I exchange RSA keys so as not to have to type a password and automate backups.
- I can work on remote files as if they were local, through SSHFS.
- For MySQL, either the cli client or MySQL Workbench.

And that's it I believe.

Navicat is the tool that I would recommend. In it’s most basic (free) form, it does more than phpMyAdmin. If you get Navicat Premium, the tools available are simply awesome. No other SQL Manager can touch it.

Since I first used Navicat three years ago, I have never ever needed to touch phpMyAdmin for any project or client ever since. There has never been an SQL issue that I have not been able to use Navicat for, it does everything and then some.

For Linux ( Ubuntu )

I personally recommend BlueFish and Gedit as well as Zend Studio for debugging code.
IDEs
  • Zend Studio ( or community edition )
  • Eclipse
  • Anjunta
  • Kompozer
  • Lazareous
  • UltraEdit
  • Bluefish
  • GedIt
I use meld...nothing else.
Comparison Tools
  • Meld Diff
  • KDiff
Management
  • XAMPP ( Easier to manage than the built in linux servers )
  • MySQL Work Bench - Design DBs, ETC
  • Search Monkey - Look for certain strings inside files, recursive folders, supports regex ( sick tool )
Graphics
  • gnuPaint
  • DrawPile
  • InkScape
  • GIMP
Entertaintment
  • SongBird ( Because I dont know a programmer that doesnt work without listening to some tunes haha )

For SQL development on Windows, TOAD is probably the best.

They have freeware versions of the Mysql and SQL Server clients.

Mac OSX

Other tools:

DS_Store Cleaner for getting rid of all those hidden DS_Store files that OSX puts into every folder that you open.

The best SVN client for Mac OS X that I have found it Versions. It's not free, there are no decent free SVN clients for Mac OS X.

There are actually several decent SVN clients for Mac. :)
There was a recent [url=hhttp://code.google.com/p/svnx/]update to svnX[/url] this month that looks really nice. My personal favorite is SmartSVN, with extremely active development and the most features I’ve seen from an SVN client, it’s a fantastic tool. Free or Pro versions available.

I LOVE Versions though, I'm glad I bought it :D

Versions does look nice, I will admit I’ve never tried it, but like you, when you purchase a good SVN client, and it is working great (and not frustrating), there is little point in buying another product. :)
