- like badblue - abyss is quite fun & I love the footprint! ...
but I would only recommend the above if you have no interest in server-side development, if you just want to serveup static pages to friends or maybe use for downloads etc then they are great (in fact better for low traffic) than apache / IIS etc
If however you want a server for server-side devlopment and testing then Apache or IIS is really the onlyway to go.
now I will tout phpdev
offer similar packages for apache/windows - or just get apache from http://apache.org
, the default install is very secure.
if you are using ASP then IIS is the way to go.
DOH - just found out that phptriad is dead
