Open Source alternative

to Dreamweaver?

how about S.C.R.E.E.M.

Just a couple of things SCREEM is missing, asp and support.

and some templates.
[ like most of those ]

But for a code view only website development and maintenance tool, it is definitely worth a look.

With built in support for CVS, site publishing, XML editing, and most scripted languages, it is actually a fairly decent tool.

The biggest real drawback is that it required the gnomevfs libs to function. Though the developers may migrate it to using fuse instead.

difference in the tools is that the linux based tools all promote working with the code. The drag and drop and wysiwyg tools are very limited.
