Windows Server 2008 - The only web server you'll ever need.

  • Comments 1

I just learned about a new site that we have put together, Microsoft.com/web.  This is a very cool site that lists a bunch of great information about why to use Windows Server as your web server.  It's a great collection of resources that point to events, downloads, and further information on components of the Microsoft Web Platform.  For instance, on that site, I just found out about the Microsoft Web Platform Installer.  This is a really cool installer that installs and configures core components such as .NET 3.5, IIS, Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition, and SQL 2008, finally making this simple and painless.  Even cooler to me is the Microsoft Web Application Installer, which provides support for popular ASP.Net and PHP Web applications including Graffiti, DotNetNuke, WordPress, Drupal, OSCommerce and more.  There's even a link on the download page which shows how to install PHP and MySQL.

That inspired me to create this graphic...
