Interesting, thanks. I want to actually develop on the box, using Eclipse or something. If I can get a PHP dev env working with debugging enabled out of the box that would be great. I could give that a shot in a new VM - sounds like a good option.

So what I do i set up my IDE on my windows or mac machine, then make a projects folder.

I map through /home/webhosts/ directory through to say...  c:\webprojects\ folder. Using vagrant file sharing.

Don't try and run a VM and then run a linux version of the IDE inside virtual box. It will be annoying, I have tried this in the past. I find windows and mac have the best development tools available.

By doing this, if the VM poops itself (which virtual box sometimes does) then your files are actually on your pc. (if you have been pushing them to a git/svn/mercurial repo then even better).

FYI I find VMware to be extremely solid by comparison to virtual box, but you need a licensed version of vagrant and vmware workstation to get it going properly on vmware.

Half my problem is getting the IDE set up and debugging working, so I do want the IDE in Linux. That's really the whole point of what I'm doing. WAMP makes basic setup easy on Windows. It's not worth financial investment given I only make changes every 6 months.
