Why use the Bitnami WAMP Stack?
Bitnami makes it easy to run WAMP locally. The Bitnami WAMP Stack is:
We track every release of WAMP and update our stack shortly after it's released.
If serious security issues are discovered, we provide new versions of WAMP 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 WAMP or other Bitnami Applications. This makes it easy to migrate between different platforms.
With the Bitnami WAMP Stack compiling, configuring and all of its dependencies are taken care of, so it works out-of-the-box.

Very easy to install and responsive but ImageMagick doesn't work in windows 7.
It needed a Extension PHP and configuration PHP panel, like cpanel have.
Sorry for my english.
I love Bitnami stacks -- Rock-solid, simple installs for local development servers. Currently I'm using the WAMP stack, though I find I uninstall and reinstall different stacks fairly often as I move from project to project. I've also tried XXAMP and some others, but have not run into any that are as easy and no-fuss to install on my Windows 7 workstation as Bitnami.
Best thing and better for you, than Apple Pie & Ice Cream even more satisfying most times too.
If you're doing any web dev, even template development, bitnami sets the bar. This is fast, friendly, and heroically easy use.
Kudo's to the whole team.
The stack clearly states that Varnish is part of the package, there is even a wiki page on how to configure it (disabled by default) if it were only disabled than it would not be a problem...the problem is that it does not even exist. I have several instances of Magento and Varnish really is needed. I even tried 2 older WAMP versions...looks like its NEVER been there, sadly disappointed.
Been installing and trying to get Apache and MySQL to work together on my puter all day long, password incompatibilities etc you name it...tried this and am relieved cuz it installed, threw Joomla on top and ready to go...easy as that great stuff! THANKS
