Web Design and Development
CSS Zen Garden
Best inspiration to create CSS based web design. Tons of eye candy.
Easy-to-use yet powerful free programming language mainly for web development.
Powerful, fast and reliable open-source database server.
Most commonly used open-source web server with excellent modules.
A "light" yet powerful alternative to the Apache httpd web server.
PHP opcode cacher for better server performance by the Lighttpd creators, currently running on the server of this website.
Open-source web application framework and content management system (CMS) using PHP and MySQL. Silverstripe powers this website since December 2007. If you are looking for a CMS try the Silverstripe demo administration system.
Great File repository for Web Servers and Virtual Private Servers (VPS) running on RHEL or CentOS.
Great resource of software if you happen to develop on a Mac.
Open-source development platform. Originally for Java development, but you can easily extend it, e.g. PHPEclipse and RadRails. Good for all your web design and development needs and more (assuming you like clean code and don't use WYSIWYG either).
Ubuntu / Beryl
Great and free Linux distribution that rocks together with the Beryl window manager. A serious desktop alternative to Windows or Mac with tons of free and very powerful software available.

Possibility to transfer your domain specific email addresses to a (free) Google Mail system. If you are not afraid that Google will one day eat your soul then you might consider to sacrifice your pride for a really good webmail system with POP/IMAP capability, an excellent spam filter and with up to 100 users per domain name for free with heaps of space available for each user. It is also possible to receive alias emails and emails from different domains into one user account and reply with different email addresses from one account (e.g. if you administer firstname.lastname@example.org, email@example.com, firstname.lastname@example.org, etc...). On top of that every user account has a Google Calendar, Google Docs, Google Talk, and a number of other in my opinion less important stuff that you may want to disable. To use Google Apps you need to be able to change DNS MX entries for your domain and DNS CNAME entries if you want nicer webmail URLs such as mail.mydomain.com.
