I'd just like to say that I've found this discussion to be very interesting and enlightning. It also makes a change to see people not "microsoft bashing" but taking an objective view on everything. We keep getting more and more requests to develop products for .net because our clients want software which runs under windows, online or (more recently) for handheld devices. So far we've concentrated on PHP for web development and Delphi for application development, but I think that .net cannot be ignored.
Even though I didn't start the thread, I found it very useful to follow Best Ade -- PHP General Mailing List (http://www.php.net/) To unsubscribe, visit: http://www.php.net/unsub.php
