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
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.
