I've got a XAMPP distribution running on Windows Vista on my media PC, which is serving basically as a 24 hour uptime web server... for myself.

I believe I have the following running basically all the time:
1. Apache 2.2
2. PHP 5.something
3. Some version of MySQL
4. Filezilla FTP server

I set it up months back so I can do local web development without eating up cycles on my work/gaming PC, but I really haven't used it for much besides a game I was working on. I have some confusing networking/sharing issues between computers connecting via Wireless, so I've been avoiding dealing with any of that lately. The last time I had these issues it was my Kaspersky getting in the way - now Kaspersky has changed its interface so I have no idea.

I also have a Raspberry Pi sitting around which I'm very tempted on my days off to set up as a headless Apache server running some flavour of ARM Linux (probably Raspbian), assuming they've ported all those web server apps to ARM code. I also also have several discarded Android devices kicking around - I wonder if Apache has been ported to Android yet... *goes on a searching safari*

I sometimes run an FTP server on Windows 7 if someone needs access to a file (or wants to send me one).

I have a print server running Windows XP, which I may well change to Arch Linux at some point.

There's also an in-built FTP server on my router.

I run servers all day at work so home is minimal. I let my router do dhcp and dns and my printer has a built in network print server. I'm toying with building a VMware box to host a small lab and some utility machines but I need some cash and some time first.
