[Discuss] bitnami stacks are awful

If you want to launch an Amazon Cloud instance with an application + LAMP
stack, don't try to "make things easier" by starting off with a Bitnami
AMI.  You'll only shoot yourself in the foot, and end up starting over.

I'm against vendor lock-in, and their AMI doesn't come with an "uninstall"
option; changes the location of and functioning of the principle services
(the A, the M and the P plus if you consider the MOTD, the L too) and
requires you to rely on their documentation in order to do anything instead
of just setting things up the 'normal' way.  It's the antithesis of open
source IMHO.
