Microsoft Web Platform Installer

A little over a week ago, Microsoft has made available the Microsoft Web Platform installer which is a single installation package for:
  • Microsoft .NET Framework 3.5
  • Microsoft Internet Information Services (IIS) 7.0
  • Microsoft SQL Server 2008 Express Edition
  • Visual Web Developer 2008 Express Edition
It makes the installation so much simpler and is available as a free download available here.

If you want an equivalent for PHP, Apache, and MySQL, check out XAMPP.
