click2try(TM) Announces New Web Developer Workstation

Provides on-demand, virtualized developer tools to encourage software and Web innovation

HOUSTON, June 10 /PRNewswire/ -- click2try (http://www.click2try.com), a community site that makes it easy to try and use Open Source software, today announced that it has added a new special-purpose application to its catalog of Open Source software. The click2try Web Developer Workstation bundles several powerful and popular development tools, aimed at Web designers and developers, into one easily accessible system.

In addition to the standard LAMP stack, the click2try Web Developer Workstation includes GIMP, Bluefish, Synfig Studio, Scribus, Piwik, phpMyAdmin, XML Copy Editor, and Joomla!

Designers and developers in the Linux and Web development communities have long been at the leading edge of trying, using, and even creating new Open Source tools to help them drive innovation. The click2try Web Developer Workstation gives new and experienced developers a complete environment in which they can evaluate a variety of tools, and use those tools to immediately begin designing and coding.

"As experienced developers, we thought we had tried just about every great development package under the sun. We bundled together what we consider best-of-breed Open Source tools," says Tom Callaghan, VP Operations. "Of course, you might want something different in a workstation. No sweat. With click2try, we can create dozens of unique Developer Workstations. We welcome suggestions from the community."

GIMP is a popular photo and graphics manipulation application. Bluefish is a powerful editor that lets Web designers and coders write scripts, programming code, and design websites. Synfig Studio is a slick film-quality 2D vector animation studio. Scribus brings page layout capabilities to users on all major operating systems. Piwik is an advanced Web analytics program that helps you track and analyze traffic to your websites. phpMyAdmin is the premier database administration tool for MySQL. XML Copy Editor is a lightweight, fast, validating XML editor. Joomla! is one of the most popular content management systems (CMS) in the world.

Developers can easily try any of the individual applications included in the click2try Web Developer Workstation. Anyone can try a temporary version of any application in the click2try catalog, simply by going to the site and clicking a button on an application's catalog page. No registration is required. If you want to save your data, you can register for free on the site and receive a limited-time access to any of the applications.

Development teams may want to collaborate and take advantage of server storage, backup services, and other upgrade options offered in the click2try subscription plans.
