hello and why!
hey guys, been reading a few threads, site seems interesting so ijoined.
I actually don't develop in PHP. I am a .net guy working with asp.net for web and windows applications.
I have a question for you php people? why use php? its a good language I agree (hence me lurking around the forum) but why not .net?
I agree .net has a harder learning curve but really if you alreadt have a PHP background then the transition shouldn't be hard?
.Net is free just like PHP to download? the visual studio IDE gives you more features then all your features combined, including file search, virtual server and intellisense.
Is it because P.HP is open source (is it even?) And if it is then how many of you actually hit the source?
.net has a much much larger framework, it's got a bigger library then PHP, most products will always give a SDK for .net rather then PHP (especially SDK's for gadgets and electronics).
PHP code is line interpreted at run time, while .net is compiled into MSIL, or machine code. Machine code will always run faster then php. Infact theres a project outthere on the net which allows "php.net" and benchmarks show up to a 10 - 20x speed increase..
Please note I am not here to bash. I think PHP is an amazing language, and I used to do php in the php4 days lol.
I wouldn't say I am a noob programmer as well.
I just wanna know what the big deal is over this php thing.
