Keith Combs’ Blahg : Windows Server 2008 Core screencast – Installing Open Source Software

Filed under: Link — Tags: , , , — noocyte @ 13:46

There’s just something inherently funny about a Microsoft employee installing what what’s basically a LAMP stack (or WIMP)  on Windows Server 2008. But using the new Hyper-V and Core features of Server 2008 you can have a multitude of high performance, easy to maintain servers running. Pretty cool!

Update: Not WAMP, but WIMP as Keith points out in the comments.. WAMP would be “Windows Apache PHP MySql”, but what Keith did install was “Windows IIS PHP MySql”.  Thanx for correcting me Keith.

  1. Tell me about it. Five years ago I would never dream of doing such a thing. Times are changing though.

  2. By the way, it’s probably WIMP not WAMP.

  3. Thanx for pointing that out, I’ve updated the post accordingly.

    I’ve always enjoyed testing Linux, but I’ve never done anything serious with it. I just hated all the config files that I had to edit in VIM, Emacs or Joe or whatever… Pain! ;)
