I don't get the point of this. I've had no trouble with Apache.

For people without a lot of sysadmin experience, and for folks who want to keep the dev environment somewhat discreet from the rest of their system, turnkey *AMP stacks like XAMPP are a nice, simple option.

That post is over 2 years old. Thanks anyway though.

XAMPP is great tool to develop and test your website (particularly if it uses php, and mysql databases) offline before putting it on a live server. You could also use XAMPP as an easy method of setting up a live server, however I can only speculate because I use it for testing only.
