Alas, I have moved away from PHP and MySQL (wordpress) towards .NET and MSSQL (blogengine.net), although I still have many negative feelings towards Microsoft (mostly because of their licensing/DRM policies) and many positives toward open source and freedom from cost. WordPress rocks, don't get me wrong; boy wordpress and I sure had a lot of fun. Yet, I am training for MS certifications, and coding in dotnet just comes natural anymore. Plus Visual Studio 2k5 blows any php editor out of the water. With the advent of .NET being released to the open community by Microsoft, I foresee a foothold on the web app scene by .NET. Besides, any one who codes both languages knows that that C# is a more polished C language than PHP is anyway; plus its available class library is far more organized. I dig organization, now if I could just get over the whole selling out thing… oh and I love my Xbox.
