I agree. I've seen many people try to do shared memory/cached programming 
in one server and it just doesn't work very well in practice. It only takes 
one programmer a typo to take everyone else down until the bug is fixed.

 From Jakarta/Tomcat to IIS to Apache/mod_perl. Developers having their own 
workstation is the best for testing and active development. Of course, a 
staging server needs to be shared. But it's a lot cleaner once the 
developer has debugged their own code.
