in reply to How famous is XAMPP?

I've seen similar packages fly by in the past and it always looked ok for the neighbour's kid with an old Win32 machine and some half-decent ADSL connection who wanted to create some FrontPage-messed-up websites about his 1337 computer game clan.

Besides that, I can't see why these packages would be chosen over the regular ways to install software (be it apt-get, rpm, emerge or anything else.) Then again, I must admit not having looked at this xampp too long.


All code is usually tested, but rarely trusted.
