Microsoft Web Application Gallery

Microsoft has introduced a new website to highlight their web application gallery.  This contains a lot of popular free and open source web applications that are packaged to be very easy to install on Windows.  The gallery includes:

  • WordPress
  • Drupal (Acquia Drupal)
  • Moodle

I discovered this through twitter and am very impressed at what Microsoft is doing here.  Obviously it helps promote Windows, but it does make it easier to introduce and access these open source applications to a wider audience which is always a good thing in my book.

It’s also timely for me in that I need to do some Drupal work soon so will be using this to setup my test/training environment.  Will provide an update to let you know how I got on with the install.

Thanks Microsoft, well done.
