Those we're some astonishing discussions about PHP and other programming languages/environments. After reading that I think most programmers would admit that PHP is a crappy language. On the other hand, PHP does one thing quite well, which is dynamically building a web page and including data from a database. There's going to be a lot of demand for that for the foreseeable future. I'll admit that about PHP, even though my personal bias is to use RPG w/ HTML templates to generate web pages.

the microsoft crowd had a field day when someone posted this article a
few weeks back about PHP:
Microsoft programmers are having a bit of a dispiriting time lately.
The company is so poorly run and so many products are not working out.
But C# and .NET just get better and better. Anders Hejlsberg is an
amazing language designer.
