+1 for Vi(m) in the terminal, its great for over ssh :)
as regards to the repositories, ubuntu only really releases stuff it has 
tested and deems safe, so the repository installs should be just fine,
if you want to get them in the terminal its just
sudo apt-get install [name of program]
sudo apt-get install mysql

its fairly helpful in how to get things and install them, you probably want 
apache too.
