One of the reasons cause I love the GNU/Linux for developing is its easy and quick setup. So if you’re a LAMP-dev you can setup a LAMP server with less than 100 chars.
With the next command you will have a apache2+php5+mysql on Debian based systems with the bonus of phpmyadmin for administer your databases.
sudo apt-get install libapache2-mod-auth-mysql phpmyadmin lamp-server^
Dont forget the trailing ‘^’ char.
