The modern interface of Noys is quick and functional, the distribution is a complete LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL, PHP) system that provides a perfect test environment. Among the default programs installed in Noys we'll find:
- MySQL Administrator and MySQL Query Browser
- PHP 5.2, with all the important extensions (PDO, MySQL, PEAR)
- Firefox and some useful complements (Firebug, Web Developer Toolbar, Greasemonkey)
Thus, creating any development from start to finish is really easy, because this Linux distribution (that can be used as a LiveCD) includes all the software that a programmer may need and much more.
