I've always ignored PHP, simply because it isn't supported
like ASP or JSP with MS and Sun/IBM competing to get
the standard...

Are you saying PHP is faster than ASP and JSP? Is it
scalable too? We like ASP and JSP for the component-based
architecture (com & dcom/com+ VS. servlets and EJB) that
lends well to a more distributed approach (ie, if your server
can't handle the load then just add another machine)...

I'd be interested to know how PHP measures up in this regard,
because, as I said before, I haven't really given it a thought until
