WPN-XM Comments

The best local development platform for Windows

Positive Comment by rowsdower
about WPN-XM Dec 2015

By far the most flexible platform - install what you need and leave aside the rest. I was able to quickly get NGINX, PHP, NodeJS and Grunt up and running along with Git. Makes developing on Windows pain free. Keep up the great work dev!
