PHPStorm on Windows, code on remote Linux?

Is anyone running PHP storm on Windows and debugging their PHP code on a remote Linux box? I ask because I am contemplating buying PHPStorm.  What opinions I have read  on this configuration say it doesn't work well.

Are you specifically interested in just the debugging process with XDebug, or about general development?  I've debugged remote code before and it's worked out just fine without any real issues that I can remember.  You need to install XDebug on the web server and be able to open the debugging port on the web server so that PHPStorm can connect.  If you can't do either of those (ie, shared hosting environment) then you'll have issues.

Developing remotely is more annoying due to needing to sync the files in some way when you make changes.  That's not really a PHPStorm specific problem though.  PHPStorm can certainly handle it, I just find the workflow annoying so I don't do it.
