I have done much/most of my development on WAMP. However despite that I recommend developing on the same as your target machine (very commonly Linux). That way you tend to avoid permissions issues, case sensitivity issues and strange tiny differences that cannot possibly break things, yet somehow still do. 

Despite being committed to cross platform and intending only to use Moodle api stuff I have introduced bugs in code that broke a plugin on the SQL Server platform in the past.
