    These two no longer appear to be free:
    Kerio (Kerio Personal Firewall is FREE for home and personal use) - http://www.kerio.com/kpf_home.html
    and
    Zonealarm Basic firewall - http://www.zonelabs.com/store/content/comp...reeDownload.jsp

    Sorry if it was already posted, or they are and I just could not find it.

    Also, some things you may / may not want to add:

    http://www.apachefriends.org/en/xampp.html -
    Theres also distros for Linux, MAC OS X, and they are working on / have one for Solaris.

    Personally, I find it useful for having a local webserver to make developing / coding websites easier.

    thank you for letting me know about those two, removed...

    As for Xampp, I'm not sure it is as user friendly as it says, for noobs.

    And for linux/unix, I have a whole list of them under Operating Systems

    Np about the 2 firewalls.

    As for xampp, I don't see how it would hurt to add the xampp. I am not exactly a noob, but i still use it. Whats to say others like me wont use it too.

    I found it very easy to use, only thing I had to configure ( for the webserver anyway ) was the security option in the admin panel, which is basically setting passwords. The things I find a bit less friendly would be the mailserver, and the FTP server. I recommend you install it to see what you think about how easy / hard it is to use.

    As for Linux: I think you misunderstood me. What you have listed under OSs are Linux distros, most if not all Linux distros come with apache and all that most of the time, but not everyone will know how to configure / use it. Plus its good to let people have options.

    I see you have other webservers as well listed, but as I said its good to let people have their options open imo. Plus its free.
