I'd like to know if there is an editor that has PHP code completion and has a fullscreen (not the way komodo edit or notepad++ have) like gedit. I've been searching for some but couldn't find any.

When I was doing PHP dev, I always preferred JEdit, which is a cross-platform, very flexible editor, with plenty of core features and a slew of plugins available. It does have a fullscreen mode, though I'm not sure this is OS-level fullscreen, or app-level fullscreen (i.e. whether it will hide the OS chrome, or just hide the application chrome.)

Sublime Text might suit your needs. It's still a little beta-ish in places.

I suggest to look at the Codelobster PHP Edition. It is great free PHP IDE with own debugger for Windows.

My vote goes for PHP Designer. It can link to SVN repositories, FTP accounts, has built-in XDebug capability and probably more that I've forgotten about. I don't use many of the "fancy" features, but I love how clean and easy-to-use it is.

You might try JetBrains WebStorm which is currently in beta release right now, but it works great.

Actually, there's gedit for Windows and take an easy way . If you want a cooler one, try a harder way. You could try it. For other choice, there's UltraEdit.

The way they talk about creating random directories in your root dir in that description makes me shiver. Do the UNIX instructions look similar (“Create /devel ...”)? – Joey Mar 23 '10 at 10:18
    
That's a lot of work for a method that doesn't explain why it's "cooler". Most of those directories already exist in a typical Unix install, so they're to appease code that expects them. The /devel one would be put in a user's home directory in Unix. – staticsan Mar 24 '10 at 0:42

Eclipse has the PHP Development Tools features, and I'm pretty sure you can go full-screen with it (or you can at least maximize a text editor within the Eclipse window, which is very distraction free).

I use VIM. It fits the needs perfectly. You can get PHP debugging and code completion scripts from www.vim.org
