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

I have installed LAMP stack and WordPress manually on Arch Linux. I still remember the pain I endured and the hour spent.
Just compare these two articles I wrote and you will see how it adds years to a developer's life:
I had never installed WordPress due to the comments of my buddies related to the hardness of the process. Until now. The installation process was so easy and no advertisements on installer at all. This is the best WordPress installer I met so far.
I have downloaded the latest pack. After two day I gave up and removed the appliance.
It's nonsense that I need to make changes even to access the VM with an SSH client. No any VMware tools are pre-installed. Many changes have to be made manually according to get it work. I tried a WordPress upgrade and it's just cycling and nothing is happening. Normally it should take place in a minute. The appliance is built with VMware WorkSation version 5, but the current version is 12!!!
I had a really terrible experience with this product.
After trying to get going with Wordpress by installing MAMP and then a Wordpress incident and having issues with plugin updates I found the Bitnami Wordpress stack a dream to work with. Unfortunately I ran into issues when I wanted to develop >1 site locally. The Multi-site version wasn't suitable for my needs. Found I was better off going back and installing plain Bitnami MAMP with as many Bitnami Wordpress modules as I wanted. If there was another way to do it I didn't find it in the support docs/forums/google.
If you will be building more than one site locally, this Wordpress installer probably isn't for you but there are definitely many awesome Bitnami options out there that will work.
If this is supposed to be a fast, failsafe method of installing WP locally, then I dread to think what the alternatives are.
