-Instant Mantis is an out-of-the-box, pre-configured, full featured version of Mantis that runs without having to install the application, the web server and the database.  It has been tested on Windows 2000/XP/Vista and should work just as well with other flavors of Windows.  Everything required to run Mantis is included in a zip file.  Just unpack the file to your hard disk, launch the web server and database processes and open your browser to the Mantis home page.+Instant Mantis is an out-of-the-box, pre-configured, full featured version of Mantis that runs without having to install the application, the web server and the database.  It has been tested on Windows 2000/XP/Vista and should work just as well with other flavors of Windows.  Everything required to run Mantis is included in a zip file.  Just unpack the file to your hard disk (you can run it off a USB drive too!), launch the web server and database processes and open your browser to the Mantis home page.
  
-Instant Mantis is ideally suited to those who want to evaluate or test Mantis or use it for demos.  It is also great if a portable version of Mantis is required which can work on an isolated notebook or a from a USB drive.  Conceivably, it could also be used for mini projects where you want a quick way to keep track of bugs without the overhead of having a full install of the web server and database.  At the moment however, we do not recommend using Instant Mantis in a production environment specially when it is accessible from the Internet.+Instant Mantis is ideally suited to those who want to evaluate or test Mantis or use it for demos.  It is also great as a portable version of Mantis which can work on an isolated notebook/computer without Internet access.  Conceivably, it could also be used for mini projects where you want a quick way to keep track of bugs and features without the overhead of having a full install of the web server and database.  However, at the moment we do not recommend using Instant Mantis in a production environment specially when you have Internet access.
  
-The good news is that an Instant Mantis runs the exact Mantis code and uses the Mantis database schema.  And hence what started as a testing area or a trial installation can then be upgraded easily to a production instance.+The good news is that Instant Mantis runs the exact same Mantis code and uses the Mantis database schema.  Hence, what could start as a test area or a trial installation can then be upgraded easily to a production instance.12345678900
