in reply to How famous is XAMPP?

I knew about it, but I can't remember how I ever stumbled upon it. I tried it a few times and I must admit it is very well done: installation is a breeze and it works "out-of-the-box. Esp. for windows-users, it is the easiest way to get a mod_perl enabled Apache server running and if you really want it you can have Tomcat and Cocoon working as well just by downloading some additional packages and running the installer.

The only reason I don't use it anymore is because Komodo doesn't recognize the Perl which it installs as a genuine "ActiveState" Perl and therefore refuses to run ppm with it.
