What operating system do you use?
I've tried a bunch of Linux distros, while studying Multi Media Design I had a Macbook, now I'm on Windows 8 (video editing) / Linux Mint and either Linux Mint or Arch Linux on my Laptop. The raspberry PI runs rasbian/debian atm.
I can only recommend a command line workflow for every node or general developer. It's just so much less of a pain on Linux or Mac os, compared to Windows.
