Web Platform Installer

I had attended an event named RIAnomics organised by Microsoft. I learned many cool technologies that can be used to develop cool new apps. So, one of the coolest app is this Web Platform Installer (a.k.a. Web PI).
What is Web PI?
"More than just a powerful set of tools, servers and technologies, the Microsoft Web Platform offers a complete ecosystem for building and hosting web sites, services, and applications. Whether you’re looking to build your company’s web presence or launch the next MySpace, we’ve got the products you need to be successful. The Microsoft Web platform is trusted by the Fortune 500, used by millions of individuals and built to work for you."
Well, for you that are interested either in developing a web app or deploying a web server, this is a really great tool to help you installs the softwares. Another great thing is that it will automatically get the latest version of software that you are installing from the web before the softwares are installed on your PC or server. Besides that, it will also automatically installs the softwares in order so that you don’t have to worry of which software to install first.
The latest version of Web PI contains:
  • Popular ASP.Net and PHP web apps that are free such as DotNetNuke and WordPress
  • .Net Framework
  • IIS and Extensions
  • SQL Server
  • Visual Web Developer
