Discussion on: What's the deal with downing PHP development?

The first two lines of the blog told me everything I need to know about writer... "I’m cranky. I complain about a lot of things." This hardly seems like an unbiased approach to reviewing a language.

Your main point about it relying on a web server. I think most languages do and don't come bundled with one. Java (a very popular web language) relies on an external web server as well.

its a pity that first two lines draw you away from a darn good writeup. anyway, my point was more about php not being able to run its own production-grade webserver, rather than having or not having built-in one per se
