    So far none that I know of. For development - it seems to do everything you could need.

    Earlier for PHP, Apache and MySQL development I had used some software I had found off SourceForge, didn't work all that well for me, I had to configure a lot of things in it and eventually it was pretty much doing everything from source.

    Used this for a while now, having no problems at the moment, its able to handle PHP as well. Not bad.

    The only thing that I can think of is that it may not have all the latest components, like Rails is 1.2.1 I think, whereas the latest is 1.2.3, and then an older Apache, and things like that, but it is a proven configuration that works well. I had no problems using it.
    Am I supposed to sign here?

    It was a pain to start up every time you wanted to do something in Ruby anyway. :P

    I just got the source and am doing it the old school way.
