@hntooter In my experience, developers hate PHP because they’ve used it (OK, so that’s personal experience talking.) To be fair, though, in 1995 it was a breath of fresh air when I was coding my web apps in C and Coldfusion was the only other higher-level alternative. (Yes, I’m that old) ;)
I once asked Rasmus what *he* thought of PHP and he replied “I don’t know, I never use it… I do all my coding in C.” :)
