    I think a far better solution would be to take a look at the BitNami stacks over at http://www.bitnami.org

    Although not “portable” like MoWeS, Bitnami’s offerings seem much more professional and better maintained. BitNami is multi-platform, with infrastructure stacks available for Windows, Macintosh, Linux, and Solaris.

    Application stacks can be downloaded as separate modules, or as part of an all-in-one that includes WAMP/LAMP/MAMP/SAMP.

    There are only 26 applications currently available as modules – but all the usual favorites (such as WordPress, Joomla, Drupal, phpBB, Liferay and SugarCRM) are there.

    They have also recently added Ruby, JRuby, and Django. Anybody who has ever struggled getting a Ruby stack set up on a PC will appreciate their inclusion.

    Great resource! Check out BitNami when you get a chance.
