We kicked a poll off three months ago asking y'all what kind of local development environment you set up for running WordPress locally. At the time of this writing, we got 2,623 votes, so a decent amount of significance here. Especially because the question was phrased:
If you're running WordPress locally (i.e running PHP, MySQL, and a web server), how are you doing it?
Presupposes that you are running a local environment. (Please do that.)
