If you don't need to develop a lot of extensions I don't see any need 
for the use of eclipse. Moving a TYPO3 website from one server to 
another is mostly a easy jobb which takes about 1 - 3 hours. As long as 
the settings for the database and IM/GM are more and less identical.

I have moved from Fedora to Debian, to OpenSuse, to Ubuntu, to RedHat 
and vice versa without problems. I only dump the database, tar the 
necessary files, moves them and import the database and do some small 
corrections - and the new site is up running.

Credentials outside the webroot are no problem either.

Mostly I develop all sites from a "standard" TYPO3 site. It's a site 
which is preconfigured with nearly everything, most used extensions, 
necessary TypoScript and stuff thats easy to configure through Constants.

Best Erik
