I would like to get the Xcode-developer things to my Macs. I noticed that Apple has started to offer some terminal things online, more here. I am still lazy to get the CDs, to get all Xcode-developer things, is there some easy way to do it online without the Xcode CD? Is there any way to get all Xcode things pre-installed so not to waste time for their installation?

I'm confused - do you have a mac or do you not have a Mac? – bmike Oct 4 '12 at 16:11
@bmike it is not a question here. The question is historical because Apple did not earlier provide Xcode online, only on CD. It is solved. – hhh Nov 29 '12 at 19:47
Thank you for cleaning this up. Simple, clear minimal questions really help the site be useful as a reference. – bmike Nov 29 '12 at 20:20
@bmike agree with that! – hhh Nov 29 '12 at 20:27

Xcode hasn't come on physical media for a long time now. These days, you can download it directly from the Mac App Store:
