The simplicity of scripting language PHP means it will be more popular than Java for building Web-based applications, Internet browser pioneer Marc Andreessen predicted Wednesday in a speech here at the Zend/PHP Conference.
That article warms my heart as PHP is my favourite language of choice for web programming.
Don't get me wrong as I don't have anything against Java. In fact, I have been teaching Java for several years and it's been my bread and butter for all that time.
However I've never used Java in work. PHP is still no. 1 in my books.
Java is just too slow and unwieldly for many things that I want to do.
