We use Centos here, but our clients use everything from FreeBSD to
RHEL to Gentoo Solaris.

Centos 5. I got sick of upgrading Fedora every time I turned
around...though I may end up switching to Ubuntu so I can get some more
bleeding-edge apps.

Vim and CVS.

Put most of your complicated logic in UserTag, ActionMap, and other
compiled routines. That is the big advantage of IC over PHP and other
templated development platforms. While you can obviously create PHP
modules, not a lot do and pages slowly become "include" and spaghetti
code nightmares.
