    Just wondering where to start as far as learning "Web 2.0" technologies, etc. for dynamic, database-driven, websites with Ajax-type user interfaces?

    Are there any good database development tools for Mac OS X? Or only Windows?
    Should I go with MySQL? PostgreSQL? Etc???
    Are there any good PHP development tools for Mac OS X? Or only for Windows?
    Are there any good UI (ajax/css/etc) tools for Mac OS X? Or only for Windows?
    Should I go with Ruby on Rails instead of PHP?

    What else am I missing? I use to code HTML and Lasso back in the day (~10 years ago). Now I want to get back into building database driven sites and there now seems to be so many different technologies to choose from. I'd love any advice on where to start!
