Hi guys, I've been doing php/MySQL etc. development for about 6 years now and my first introduction to the world of WAMP solutions was Apache2Triad, after this became a dead duck I naturally progressed onto XAMPP which is what others were recommending at the time.

Over the last few versions of XAMPP I was becoming more and more annoyed with their apparent inability to fix issues like distributing an old version of PEAR and expecting users to update it manually, problems with compatibility with Windows7 (64 bit) etc.

About 6 months ago, I found out about The Uniform Server at a Wikidpedia page comparing WAMPs and noticed that your versions of PHP, MYSQL, Apache etc. were all bang up to date so thought I'd give your WAMP a try.

Fast forward to the current date and I wouldn't use anything else, you guys release new versions all the time so it's never out of date. I also recommend The Uniform Server to any poor lost souls who tell me they're still using XAMPP. :(

I'm sending a donation your way to show how much I appreciate your continued development of The Uniform Server. Keep up the great work.

Thank you!
That's the kind of response that energizes us and makes all the hours spent (well, most of them :() worthwhile.
I'm sure I can speak for the rest of the group that we feel The Uniform Server is also our first choice.

All kidding aside, thanks again,

PS, We DO look for additional help from others, and I noted from your subsequent post that you're suggesting a change. Please continue tossing those our way.

Yes thanks much for The Uniform Server, I am no expert by far, my first home server was all done the old way, I found some pretty good DIY instructions on setting up your own server had to download and install each item then configure them all, took me a whole day to do what now takes me about 1 minute using The Uniform Server.

Keep up the good work.
