Uh? The first version of PHP was released over a year before the first
version of ASP. Heck, there were even M$ developers on the first PHP
mailing list that at one point sent out a survey asking the PHP community
what they wanted to see in an HTML-embedded scripting language.
But sure, PHP will always be the "low cost option". No real way around
that being an open source project, and frankly that is a big feature and
certainly not a liability.
