I think the Web Platform Installer is a great tool, but I have to question the wisdom of its home page:
But that’s not really the problem. The bigger problem is this: A "spotlighted installers" feature probably sounded great on the drawing board, but this tool is intended for public-facing web servers. It isn’t the App Store; public-facing web frameworks should not be impulse buys.
What should go here? I’m not certain. My first thought is security updates, but those should already come through Microsoft Update. Perhaps a link there, or a display of what is already installed, and whether it’s up to date?
