comment How should I set up my coding environment for PHP, mySQL, and JavaScript development?
MacVim is a nice version of gvim, similar to vim on Windows or gvim on Linux. With a little bit of creative soft-linking you can use the MacVim version from the command-line replacing the stock vim, or by typing mvim open the MacVim app with files. The best thing is your editor is available at the command-line or with a windowed interface on all sorts of OSes. I spend hours ssh'ing into hosts at work using vim at the command-line. Sometimes I use the netscp vim plugin to open files from the hosts on my office Mac. It's all the same keypresses and plugins and color schemes.

Use rvm use 1.9.2 --default to set a particular version of Ruby as your default. Of course you'll want to substitute the version of Ruby you favor if it's different than 1.9.2.

comment Which Macbook Pro Hi-Res screen is better for editing photos?
I have shot photography professionally for many years, and bought glossy screen MacBook Pros for our editing. The color of the glossy is much more saturated without the matte finish. The downside is you can get a glare if you have a strong light behind you, but most of the time that can be fixed by turning the computer a bit.

comment Is it possible to have tabs in Finder?
When I need more screen real estate I set up a couple Screens and bounce between them. My Mac Pro at work has two monitors on it, and I have four workspaces set up, and am jumping back and forth all the time.

comment Easy way to get gcc and make in OSX
It's worth downloading XCode if you are developing software. Ruby, Perl and Python use it any time they have to compile a native driver, which could occur any time you add a module to a language.

I use Spotlight instead of QS too. Works fine.

So does the Dock if you click and hold on the icon of a running app.

I'm quite self-respecting and personally find the Dock usable for all I need it to do.

comment Why is the wireless connection between my MacBook and AirPort Express so unstable?
I'll recommend the Airport Extreme as a great router. It's been rock solid where our Linksys wasn't able to get a signal through.

comment Why is the wireless connection between my MacBook and AirPort Express so unstable?
Hmmm. Have you confirmed that it's running the current version of the software? Also, you mention having a wireless phone near it. Certain ranges of wireless will interfere but I don't remember which ones; Shutting off the phone's power should clear it up if that's the problem.
