How do you want the next version of Uniform Server

Also, I have a suggestion for distribution. You should make it available via bittorrent too. It'll save you bandwidth. If you need a tracker, you can either use owntracker.com or install torrenttrader light. all you have to do is upload the files and chmod a couple of them.

Greatest disadvantage by distributing as SFX, MSI or any other .exe-fileformat is that the files can easier get infected by virus and stuff like that. I'd certainly prefer that a zip (not 7zip) was put out too.
Ofcourse there should be an installable version too. Just not my personal preference.

a ZIP will do nicely and everybody's got it, although 'compressed folders' is really, really slow.. 7zip or izarc are much better, and free, alternatives.
just make sure the root of the archive is a folder that has everything in it (like it is now). i hate it when i 'unzip here' and i get files all over the friggin place. i remember one upgrade of mambo and the root of the archive was NOT a folder and it extracted all over the top of my install (a live site), instead of into a folder like they normally do.. forced me into an upgrade i wasn't quite ready for... grrrr...

We are using the NSIS installer so it can automatically install everything for you and add the settings to the httpd.conf file or whereever it needs...
The .zip is also a must and will be there just as we have a .exe and .zip for the main server distribution....
