I've been using (on both WinXP and Linux) Eclipse PDT[0] with Xdebug[1] 
(both free).  I'd rate it something like 9/10 - very good to work with 
after some initial tweaking.

If you'd like to pay for your IDE, you might want to consider Zend 
Studio[2] (also based on Eclipse). Other Eclipse based IDEs include 
Aptana[3] and PHPEclipse[4]. These I haven't tried.

I used to use PHPEdit[5] (not free). It was good too.
