    I'm about to become a MBP owner after 16 years developing websites on Windows machines. Any recommendations for software and anything else would be welcome.

    The main thing will be a new editor capable of handling PHP, Javascript, CSS and HTML. My existing editor is Homesite which is as old as the Ark and not cross platform (although still great!).

    I'm a huge fan of Sublime Text, which is cross-platform if you ever need to use your Windows machine for some reason.

    +1 on Sublime Text, you can't go wrong with it. It's awesome - especially all the user-submitted plugins that you can download using built-in manager (https://sublime.wbond.net). Also, since OSX is basically UNIX - you'll have the easy and native access to all the stuff that cool kids in webdev are using nowadays - npm, bower, yeoman, grunt/gulp and so on...

    Thanks. Sublime Text is probably my first port of call. Looks good.

    I'm all about being down with the kids.
