You need to know your way around gcc to get this running at home. nivfreak has made a nice installer, which unfortunately cannot be redistributed legally. We're working on a replacement for the copyright-encumbered parts. Check back in a few days for a legal, easy to use installer.
I usually keep two 20" screens side by side on my desk, so I can code on one and test on the other. I find I can work much faster if I can just make a change in Eclipse, and by the time I turn my head to the other screen, the tests have already run. My new laptop, however, has a 15" screen, which feels a bit cramped when I'm working away from the office. I've been using the fancy Desktop Manager by Richard Wareham, which is a very nice utility to let you keep several virtual desktops, and change between them easily.
