I've worked in PHP for 5 years now, and tried Python and Ruby (in RoR).
For now I'm pleased with the currenty PHP development plan, can't wait PHP 5.3 to use namespaces (adding a new dimension to your OOP), also plan on using built in PDO.
Python for me is a secondary language - not for web development (tried Django) but for mini applications that I can code - personal use or for some clients.
Like it's code writting style. and thats about it.
Ruby - nice language, cute code writting but it is used in ROR - and I don't like to be bordered with frameworks limits. Yeah you want to develop quickly, but the whole scaffold thing - I don't like it. I want have whole control over my code, even the database interface.
But I've gone in another way here - frameworks.
So - short and sweet - I've started with PHP and I'm looking forward to the functions that it brings. :)
Back from sysadmins to the programmers.
