DesktopServer has been the foundation of my local development environment for years now. Only recently had I actually used WPSiteSync to push a local site to live. It was the easiest migrations I had ever performed. Don’t get overwhelmed by the variety of local development environments available to new or experienced developers. Having tried MAMP, Homebrew, and Vagrant, Local, Bitnami stacks, and others, I came back to Desktop Server for one simple reason. It never failed. If you’re worried about the cost, consider it an investment. Build the cost of the license into your first few sites. You won’t regret it.
