    @amc: What doesn't it answer? The question was "can I install Apache, etc. in desktop ubuntu?". The answer is yes. – user269370 Apr 20 '14 at 3:31
  • If users on this site took such a literal view, every answer to the questions posed here would be "yes" or "no". Please provide a detailed answer that explains HOW to actually install [in this case] apache, mysql, php. – amc Apr 20 '14 at 3:34
