Open Blue Dragon has come a long way in a short period of time. They now offer a super fast way to get ColdFusion up and running on pretty much any machine for developement. On top of that it comes with a nice GUI.

So how easy is it? Just download the package, unzip it, and run the OpenBlueDragonDesktop.sh. Thats all!. It will launch a gui to start, stop, and point the server anywhere (pictured above). I also must add the administration interface is MUCH more pleasing than their Adobe counterpart.

I still use ColdFusion on a daily basis, along with php. But the question remains. Does ColdFusion still play a major roll in web development? Or has it been written off is a slow, out of date, has been?
