Im using MAMP (on a Mac)
On my PC i prefer xampp. xampp contains a full install of PHP meaning all of the extesnions are available, which is not the case with wamp. In xamp, if you need to enable an extesnion like cURL, you just have to edit the php.ini file, and restart.
with wamp, the cURL extension is not included, so your out of luck. other extensions are also not included.
xampp is a much better way to go in my opinion.
