Why use the Bitnami Magento Stack?
Bitnami makes it easy to run Magento in the cloud, locally or virtually. The Bitnami Magento Stack is:
We track every release of Magento and update our stack shortly after it's released.
If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of Magento as soon as possible, often within hours of the availability of a fix.
With Bitnami, you get the same software stack and configuration regardless of where you are deploying Magento or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.
With the Bitnami Magento Stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

I used to install, configure and do all kinds of stuff in the command line prior actually having anything ready. Now I get the image and I have a wordclass open source ecommerce platform at my finger tips. Bitnami is a great service and saves a lot of tedious work in getting an application running by having ALL supporting software installed and ready to go!
I have been developing my Company's Online Magento site Since years, through massive lines of code, and test deploys. ! With Bitnami I have "Mastered the Art of Deployment", Thanks Bitnami !
I have been a magento developer for around 12 months now, but after speaking with a client using enterprise i fail to see the need for using it and paying the enormous fees, all the features that used to be unique now appear to be included in the enterprise edition according to this article http://www.magentodedicatedserver.com/whats-new-with-magento-community-edition-1-9/
I will be moving a new client currently on a sonassi cloud to your service to trial it in the next few weeks as i love the integrated and support your company is offering above that of most of the other specialists in magento hosing.
Please let me know if you think i should keep the current client on magento enterprise or move them to community?
Why don't I know?
Because I am not able to open any folder outside the server.
Some of us (developers) are mildly interested in having to reconfigure ports or find private key or how to connect via FTP as if I am connecting to CIA servers...
Some of just want to get to play with CODE and are not so keen in the rest.
Honestly, this is very easy to download and to start. After that, it feels like I am trying to open a safe!
Please, give us a completely unsafe/open machine so we can start looking at the software and let the sysadmins worry about security later.
That, would be great.
I had lots of trouble with the updating of components in magento on bitnami stack. Finally all became hell and closed the vm down in azure
