I come from a windows environment, so i think its safe to say I'm totally new to Linux.
The reason I'm switching to Linux is because I would like to develop my PHP and MySQL skills in a more familiar environment, sure, I could download PHP and MySQL for Windows but I'd rather write scripts in the OS I'd be uploading to.
So I guess my question is: What Distro is best for developing these types of scripts in? Is there a distro that already comes with apache, php, mysql etc already installed or would I have to download them?
I'm not worried about games, though I would like to be able to connect to the internet, use email etc. And I need a distro that has a basic word processor installed, and a graphics program.
Any help is highly appreciated.
