Ok, but that's not a general rule.

Not really. You can update the PHP core files by replacing them

It is not XAMPP that freezes, it is apache service program.

It depends on what you want to do.
Also, for production phase, I'll sure get apache installed and maybe even recompile it from scratch for proper customization. But the pre-configured apache in XAMPP suffices most of the times during development.

I don't know. But it doesn't need much support since it is a wrap-up of softwares that already have support. You are talking like XAMPP is running an HTTP server other than apache.

What are those code snippets in el-nashra or almazad that cause troubles on XAMPP.

Btw, I use apache on Fedora
