I don't use any graphic interfaces on Linux, although there are some
around. I use vim... can't get more basic than that. The only thing that
works better for me is BBedit, but that's only for OSX :(
I had to do a very complicated find and replace across an entire site
recently and used a shell/perl single line command to do it. First you
have to learn shell and perl. Apart from that slight problem, it's much
nicer to do tasks like that from the command line once you can do it. Then
again, if you are professionally doing web sites, you already know perl
anyway, don't you? ;-)

nothing beats rsync. NOTHING. Also installed on OSX. If you aren't using
rsync, you are making life hard on yourself.

very switched on. (what is LAMP, btw?)
