WAMP vs XAMPP pros/cons – for running a local testing server [closed]

What are the major pros/cons that can help in deciding which of the two to choose: WAMP vs XAMPP for running a local testing server for WordPress?

PS: I now see Stack Overflow had a discussion about it.


Biggest difference – WAMP runs on Windows, XAMPP is multi-platform. Aside from that it’s a matter of personal preference. They both provide you with an Apache-MySQL-PHP environment that runs pretty much the same under both systems.
