1) Eclipse - just darn works on Linux, Win or OSX. Project before this  
had a dev team spread across all 3, with the end result running on  
Solaris. Score double for the language-specific plugins.

2) PHPMyAdmin - if you want to see and control what's going on with a  
MySQL db and you don't want to use raw SQL (Hassan's right: CLI  
rocks), then do it on the server!

3) To expand on the CLI thing - learning simple text processing (even  
simple stuff like 'cat dbdump.txt | more' let alone grep, regular  
expressions or Perl/Python processing) can save you massive tonnes of  
Suggest  you start with something like: http://freeengineer.org/learnUNIXin10minutes.html
