This is how awesome Ubuntu is.

I was interested in trying out some bug tracker tools and found a program called Mantis. I found an installation guide at http://www.gbbservices.com/prog/mantis.html
If you go and view that page you will see that it takes quite some time to get this up and running, but not in Ubuntu. I got everything working by simply typing the following in at the terminal:
sudo aptitude install apache2 mysql-server php mantis

In about a minute Ubuntu had downloaded, installed, and configured everything. Go back and review the above page for installing on Windows and then review my instructions for installing on Ubuntu.
