Desktop Server is one of the most popular tools out there for managing local WordPress Deveolopment. But you're right, you don't have to use it. It's only an option. Other courses feature MAMP or XAMPP.

I use XAMPP for local development so chances are I'll not get round to using Desktop Server but I'll be sure to check it out when the time comes :)

Thanx Jonathan.. You are always helpfull :)
