Diaspora is a great social networking initiative with a massive amount of potential despite its progress being very slow. This bitnami installer allows for easy and quick deployment with minimal knowledge of the rather complex setup to get it running, however out of the box this could not be used by a novice for any sort of production environment and even a limited test environment due to the broken out of the box captcha system. If you try to register a new user with a fresh install the captcha simply displays as a broken image and thus the user can never see it and thus can never register a new account.
I tested it on my ubuntu 14.04 laptop and it worked without problems.
It makes the rather complicated installation of diaspora a child's play.
