Aside from ServerPress being the only application I recommend to clients and customers that need a reliable, easy to use testing environment for their sites, it’s also a polished, rapidly-deployable alternative to more “developer-y” offerings like Vagrant and *AMP.
I was admittedly quite hesitant initially, but ServerPress sold me almost immediately. I’ve also found no complications in using ServerPress concurrently with git, svn, various task runners, and wp-cli.
