      Apache HTTP Server vs XAMPP
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Xampp contains apache, it's a bundle of software and apache is one of them. Other software like xampp do pretty much the same thing, bundle for specific software

      AMPPS vs XAMPP
      pros, cons and recent comments
      tedcurran I love the user-friendly tools AMPPS gives you to install and configure a variety of open source tools on your desktop. Simple "wizards" walk you through the process of setting up Wordpress and others, while suggesting free themes to install. Very smooth.

      BitNami Application Stacks vs XAMPP
      pros, cons and recent comments
      Bitnami installs "stacks" not Apache, MySQL and PHP. Stacks are a form of Web software.
