Is LAMP strictly for development purposes?

http://askubuntu.com – So basically, is LAMP strictly for development purposes or is it fine for production websites as well? I ask this because I have recently switched to Ubuntu from Windows and if WAMP is anything like LAMP, it is more aimed towards development than production (live) websites. Does the same apply for LAMP? I wish to run a small website on Ubuntu and I'm wondering if LAMP is secure enough. (HowTos)
