[JS] I second this. Instead of using a LAMP development environment, I went 
with WAMP -- even though our production environment was LAMP. It was a lot 
easier than setting up LAMP in a virtual machine. When we shut down our LAMP 
site for cost reasons, I moved it to a WAMP environment that I bought off the 
shelf for $800. For that money I got 8GB of RAM, four cores, and a RAID 
controller. Another $90 for a second drive, and I've got mirroring going.

Granted, it's a low-traffic site used for internal administration; but I think 
this box could handle a lot more traffic than it does. It seems to be loafing 
all of the time. It's a home/SOHO/gamer system, so it probably isn't as 
physically robust as a "server" grade machine at twice the price; but if it 
dies, I can be up and running on a newer, bigger, cheaper machine in little 
more than the time it takes me to run to the nearest big-box store.
