Hello, Has anyone tried to do any kind of web development on Linux? Is it even possible to make good looking professional sites? If so, how? Most of a web developers toolbox seems to be missing (flash, dreamweaver), so how can I cope? Thanks

so when i worked at Ofoto (now http://www.kodakgallery.com) we used vi to do all the site coding (jsp/html/java). let go your dreamweaver crutch. =)

I'm sure there are graphics editing tools a plenty out there to replace photoshop. Not sure about the options for flash.

I do all my webdevelopment in Linux. I use Bluefish as my editor, GIMP for my images and gFTP for my FTPing needs (Bluefish can work over FTP, but a good FTP client is better for mass uploading/moving/deleting). I use FireFox, Opera, Links, IE5, IE5.5 and IE6 (the latter 3 running on Wine) to check my websites. There probabely are flash editors for Linux but I never use flash. If you need a WYSIWYG editor (I don't) then have a look at Mozilla Composer or Nvu.

Yeah, I do about 93% of all my development in some kind of text editor. I really don't like code completion too much, it messes up my flow as I've trained myself to open and close braces together etc., I know I can turn these features off, but why not just use a text editor?
