BitNami Adds Modules

,----[ Quote ]
| Previously, each piece of software you installed with BitNami was entirely
| self-contained. For example, if you used their packaging to put both
| WordPress and Drupal on the same server, you'd end up with two copies of
| Apache, two of MySQL, and so on. While this made for easy configuration and
| trouble-free installs, it also had the potential to waste a lot of disk space
| and system resources.
| [...]
| The new approach makes using BitNami to set up a corporate server with a
| variety of open source software easier than ever.

| Created as an open-source project by Dries Buytaert, Drupal is a free content
| management framework--a tool for building customized websites quickly and
| easily, without sacrificing features or stability. Site owners can choose
| from a list of possible features: they might, say, want to publish Â*articles,
| offer each user a profile and a blog, or allow users to vote or comment on
| content. All these features are optional, and most are independent of the
| others.

| Thursday at the Launch Pad session at the web 2.0 Expo in SF. Although they

| their soon to be released Carbon and Spokes programs are still plenty
| enticing.
| [...]
| It can be thought of as the equivalent of Red Hat distributions of Open
| Source Linux in that it’s essentially a commercial supported distribution of
| Open Source software. The benefit of such a system is that it offers users
| all the glories of open source software and community support along with
| business-quality support and response time guarantees.


Free software is better for web pages

| Despite the considerable advances that the free software has made in the last
| years in its «market share» in different fields in informatics, only in a few
| of this fields free software has the supremacy. One of these is the field of
| web servers.
