Microsoft starts distributing open-source Drupal, WordPress and OScommerce

The single biggest distributor of Drupal just might be Microsoft. As I discovered from Dries Buytaert’s blog on Wednesday, Microsoft’s Web Application Installer comes with out-of-the-box support for WordPress, Drupal, OScommerce, and other popular open-source Web applications.

The Web Application Installer Beta is designed to help get you up and running with the most widely used Web applications freely available for your Windows Server. Web AI provides support for popular ASP.net and PHP Web applications, including Graffiti, DotNetNuke, WordPress, Drupal, OSCommerce, and more.

With just a few simple clicks, Web AI will check your machine for the necessary prerequisites, download these applications from their source location in the community, walk you through basic configuration items, and then install them on your computer.
