Considering WordPress--Can I try without a server? (3 posts)

    Is it possible to try out and explore WP without first committing to a host? Could I see the results as a preview on a browser?

    If so, would it then be smart to uninstall wp and then re-install with the "easy installation" my host service offers? (the one I'm thinking of does have the most current version of wp available)

    thank you!

  2. You can install WP on your desktop, if you have WAMP, XAMP or MAMP or something similar to let your PC act as a server.
