true. but,

a) that's a whole thread of its own. for purposes of clarity, we may
wish to spin off a separate thread for that.

b) the truth is we are mostly geeks and technologists. we grok
technology better then business, well, perhaps not all of us, but
definitely most of us. hence, our ability to debate/argue/discuss
technology is considerably better then to discuss business issues.
that's not to say business issues are not important, but having no
discussion is better then having an uninformed discussion, imho.

well said. however, other posters feel php is not as good as the j2ee
stack. i would like that to be substantiated, else we'll just be
promoting more fud, which when it comes from foss-er's, is just sad :(
